An Altered suitcase.

I have had this little suitcase ( 13" x 9" for years, so decided to get it done. I have altered it in the steampunk vintage style so it suits A Vintage journey -- A vintage travel and luggage, and SanDee &  amelie's steampunk challenge -- Anything goes & Rhedd's Creative Spirit - Anything goes
I covered the top and insides with papers from Tim Holtz destination paper stack and painted the sides and edges with Fresco paint and crackle glaze. I added some texture paste through Tim's splatter stencil. and some images from the papers. A few metal cogs and wooden clocks finished it off.

What a wonderful collage job you did on your suitcase.. My favorite genre for creating is steampunk so I'm loving every bit of this... The crackle finish turned out wonderful. Have fun filling your suitcase with wonderfulness... Thank you for creating with us at Rhedds Creative Spirit
