Ok, so I found this purse as I'm packing...I'm not finished with it since I lost
A)the handle, and
B) the screws for the hinges. Go me!
No pics of it in progress, started this over a year ago, never got around to clear coating it and putting it back together.
Also, some of the pics are really yellow(GRR!!!) since the lighting in my house suxors and my flash was bleeding the colour out of everything, I had to settle.
I put a lot of time into it, de-constructed it first, then started with HOT pink tissue paper, layerd zebra on top (for pink zebra, looks more like sunburnt), and let it dry, slapped on the front
painted my name myself with paint marker, hand drew the swords and hearts and the two yellow roses (I'm a Texas girl).

So then I did the backside with some pin-up girls from a Elvgren daily calendar, and two Betty pics from some mags I have (I scanned them, I could never tear up those mags!)
inside lined with black tissue paper, then coloured the pics on the inside with Prismacolours
The mermaid (my son and I) is on the top, the pin-up and sparrows on the bottom
And once that was said and done, I did the sides with hearts and daggers
and cherry blossom/dogwood (I interbred the two) flowers and petals, coloured with paint marker.

Well, that's about it for my first post
Let me know what y'all think.
