I've called her the Psychedelic Suitcase, and I promise you I wasn't under ANY influence whilst creating her! Unless of course we can blame Jenny!
The finish could be better, really I need a sharp craft knife, but I'm not good with sharp implements! I'm only just overcoming my fear of this......
I no longer break out in a cold sweat just looking at it!
At first I was going to make the suitcase pretty, but then threw 'caution to the wind' and thought 'what the heck' and just put the wallpaper on without thinking about it too much! As you can tell! I now have two more, so the next one might look a little bit calmer!
I've lined inside with a 1970 Playhour Annual, now this took ages because I had to read it as I went along! Even eldest Bea said "that's good Mum" and she doesn't do vintage! If I make another one then I will definitely pay more attention to the finishing touches, this is ok for a first attempt. I will use her as a prop for my fair next week. The rest of the time she will reside on the top of my wardrobe filled with all manner of crafty stuff!
I've also made some, much calmer, and prettier, bags this week, using some of my sheets and doilies my sister picked up from a charity shop for me.
Think these will make nice storage bags for toys, underwear etc.
I had a great day with my Sisters on Saturday, will show you the photos later in the week!
Thanks for all your 'scrappy' advice! I think I will make some cards with some of the scraps, now that's a whole new ball game for me!
Welcome to my new followers, that always sounds a bit pompous, but I don't mean it to be, I can't believe there are over 100 of you that are even the slightest bit interested in my life, but I'm very glad you are....Thank you!
