I love those inexpensive canvas totes you can find at the craft store! They're often on sale for just a dollar or two and they make the perfect foundation for mixed media art of all kinds! I created this collaged tote with burlap ribbon ruffles and a burlap ribbon penholder to house my favorite journaling pen. The tote is the perfect size for a composition book or other art journal. Here's a link to a tutorial if you would like to make one for yourself.
