I loved creating this easel card for Brenda's "Vintage Travel and Luggage" theme.
For this theme I have created a shadow box with an Andy Warhol influence - repeating imagery with varying colours. Purely an aesthetic influence however, I have lost all his cultural references. I have distressed my imagery and frame to add to the vintage feel. There is more detail today over at Addicted to Art.
For Brenda's challenge - I made a travel satchel for the lady traveling on her own to keep those special items she might need with her at all times apart from her stored trunks - to hold perhaps some change for tipping the luggage handlers, some blush for her cheeks, her ever present embroidered handkerchief and a journal to record the details of her trip! I used two prints of Tim's Eclectic Element fabrics for my satchel and added a luggage tag decorated with Remnant Rubs, Chit Chat Stickers and a Pocket Card. My satchel is reversible with 6 pockets on one of the sides.
For me one of the essential items that this lovely lady would pack for her journey would be a diary in which to note down where she visits and to collect small items and photos to stick in as a memento of her trip. I used the folded note book technique using one 12 x 12 sheet of Tim's paper to make the mini book and added some stamped items and small tags in pockets so there is plenty of room on which to write and stick.
Thank you to everyone who joined us for the previous challenge it was lovely to see so many entries and to spend some time visiting your blogs. We hope you will join us for our new challenge theme and we look forward to your comments and projects to come.
Once more have a wonderful new year ahead.
