I received these two amazing ATCs from susanab yesterday!!

A "Detroit Tigers" one that says it all lol! And a zentangle for "Artist's Choice"! This was her first zentangle and I think it is awesome! I wouldn't even know how to begin one of those! The light pink at the bottom is actually a bright orange but my scanner doesnt register that color for some reason! Wink(Now I think I will add zentangles to my list  Cheesy) Thanks so much susanab!!!

I received a couple of really great ATC's the other day.....

First up is this Detroit Tigers ATC! It's the "Best Seasons"! (this actually makes the team look a little pathetic but I'm a true fan through thick and thin LOL! Wink

Next is this "Artist's Choice" ATC from nightlite. It goes with my horse-beings theme! This is really neat! It looks sewn either really steadily by hand or a machine! Very cool!

Thanks ladies! They are great additions to my growing collection!  Cheesy

130  Redecorated Suitcase!!! in Completed Projects by mandykaye on: October 04, 2010 06:47:01 AM
I have had this old plain brown beat up suitcase for quite some time that I couldn't bear to throw away! I've seen some great suitcases redone on here and became inspired!!! Unfortuneatly i didn't take a "before" photo (slaps self on head)! But it was just a plain brown suitcase with a green stiped interior.

I washed the outside of the suitcase and applied a layer of torn newspaper using Modge Podge. Then I found some Asian inspired photos from some magazines for a tranquil inspiration and Modge Podged those on top. Then I decorated with some glitter, buttons, and charms. I Used some acrylic paint and stamps to finish up! I applied some ribbon trim with hot glue around the top and bottom of the suitcase.
I also glued a strip of ribbon to the inside of the top to serve as a pull tap to help lift the top when closed. The old leather handle had broken so I replaced it with some silky braided rope.

Then I reinforced the hinges on the inside with some ribbon as well. I replaced the bootom liner of the suitcase with a few hand-sewn silk-like quilt sqaures and hot glued the liner into place and trimmed it out with ribbon as well. the top pocket was still in good shape so I left it! 

I liked how it turned out and was thinking of giving it as a Christmas gift with little candles and scented oils and other meditation items wrapped inside. What do you think? I am not so sure now...... Thank you for looking and sharing your insights!
