Do you ever see a challenge and create a piece somehow realising that you have gone off in the complete opposite direction to everyone else and they may well think you are bonkers! Well pop across see my team mates gorgeous makes and bear my make below in mind and you may well get what I mean!!
So here is my make :
and now for the hidden treasures..
I went for the travelling salesman type , away from home with all his pills and potions for sale as well as family photos and stuff...I know maybe I really have lost the plot! It just appealed to me and the fun of making labels, distressing tiny photos, books, muslin and more really was a ball! And lots of idea-ology play is always up my street!
So I started with a papier mache suitcase and believe me , when I say this is a lot tinier than I imagined before I started... but I inked, painted and scuffed until happy and added labels and a tiny label, die cut and inked.
then onto the inside, firstly I needed a little shelf to sit my vials on...and an art part was perfect.
I found a little dolls house book and gave it the distress treatment..also a little map from a Tim Holtz paper stack, distressed with vintage photo distress re-inker in mini mister
then filled little bottles with film strip ( who knows what gems these may contain)
had such fun filling these vials!, rusty wire and a label compete this one...
poison (using rub on and talcum powder) , a crackled bottle using Wendy Vecchis' technique of glue and seal and then rock candy..., watch parts, old paper...I tell you such fun!
Now for the other side of the case..
lots more goodies, maybe treasured photos, or spooky keepsakes?!
I think you can tell, I may have gone off on a slight...ahem....large tangent but I had FUN!!!
Anyway there is still a week to join in the fun and all the items I used from the Funkie Junkie Boutique are listed below...Make sure you pop across here to see my team mates makes, they are gorgeous !
have a fun and inky day!
