Hi, Zuzu here again
This weeks project is a little suitcase; they come in a set of two, and I have used the smallest one for this project.
a paint dabber). But I dont cope well with white lol. its too new and clean, so I distressed it down a bit with some brown ink.
Now I reassembled the case, before decorating, using PVA glue.
To make the labels, I used distress inks on crumpled paper, a nice, easy and popular Tim Holtz technique, and stamped out my 'Travelling words', (also in distress ink). I used 'Broken China' and 'Fired Brick'.I added some ribbon and charms to the back.
And of course to make it authentic I filled it with "stuff", including two large distressed maps, made using the Europe map background and more distress inks (broken china, fired brick and vintage photo.)
You can get a nice selection of vintage looking bits from The artistic stamper, including optical lenses similar to the one I have used and the large clock charm is also stocked. I have also used one of the little corked vials from the Idea-ology range.
See you in a couple of weeks with a new project.
