I bought this little suitcase in a charity shop and knew as soon as I saw it what I was going to do with it.
To begin with I covered it in gesso and then painted it white. It was originally covered with a blue flower paper which was nice but I wanted to use the beautiful Craft Consortium decoupage paper Cottage Classic for my project.
So when the paint was dry I used the paper to cover it.
This is such a beautiful paper
I also made a little travel tag to match.
Of course I didn’t stop there. I did something rather special to the inside too.
To see that though you will have to wait for part 2.
You can find the paper in the shop here -
Until then, take care
