Drawing on Brown Paper Bags

I love brown paper, I used to make potato stamps and print my own wrapping paper at Christmas. I love it's natural colour, and fibrous texture.
This was a bit of an experiment, a drawing on a brown lunch bag. I'm not sure if this is something worth exploring, I wonder about the archival properties of brown paper. And yet there's something quirky and satisfying about bringing a mundane brown bag to life. 
I'm also thinking these brown bags would make a neat little notebook, bound up nicely.
