::::NEW::::
Sandworms on page five!


Okay!
I went to the junk store and whilst walking down the ilse and ilse of random junky things just waiting to be molded and created anew into craft projects... i see it...
a row for old suitcases, and one pops out!

A decent looking suitcase that was "supposedly" broken...
Well...i look at the price tag and BOOM!
$1.50!
I've never grabbed anything faster!

And after some burned and stabbed fingers...

The inside! Lined with blue and black fabric...lets see...i got..3 yards for 75 cents? yeah!


Now okay. i'm not one for a light blue suitcase so I painted the outside black and then worked... (very slowly but surely) to paint the faces of beetlejuice and lydia on the outsides!

Close up of beetlejuice!


Yay! I may decide to add things... who knows. maybe the sandworms around the edges...but for now!!
here it is!

I would love to hear what you think about it!!!

THAT IS SO AWESOME!!! I don't have any suggestions for how to make it look better because I think it's AWESOME the way it is. Now time for my silly question, what kind of paint did you use? I would love to not have to examine all the identical suitcases to figure out which one is mine when I grab my luggage.
