Altered Train Traveling Case...

This is a Altered Traveling case I made for a fellow crafter.

I stared out by painting the entire case with Gesso .
Than I mod podge it with Prima "Printery collection "
the sheet is called Signature.

I washed over it with Tim Holtz distress stain
"walnut" than to lighten it up I used some watered
down gesso all over it.

I like how it gave it a Antique look.
I added trim and embellishments.

 The inside was a bit challenging .
I glue down some material I had on hand to hide the hideous
color navy blue.  I took strips of muslin that i distressed and
made a ruffled it by using hot glue on my  matt and laying
the strip of muslin on it using a pinching technique to make it ruffled.


this is the bottom view.
I hope you enjoyed my Train Case I altered.
Thanks and Have a wonderful

Mixed Media Art...

I was playing with my sprays on water color paper and love the way it turned out.
I stamped a city along the bottom and masked the center one,
 so I could stamp the
G 45 stamp of the ladys.
I used a Tim Holts stamp for the quote
 ( experience is not what happens to you.
 its what you do with what happens to you).
splatered some paint and stamped some more.
I matted it with cardstock .

Thanks for visiting my blog and as always Have a great Day....
