I love Travel, Adventure, Memorable Journey's and especially Art. I am constantly inspired by beautiful things. When I saw this photograph of a colorful attache case, taken in paris, on a blog I follow, Diani Living. I was in Love!
Unfortunately they were priced out of my budget. I looked at the photograph again and thought, maybe I could create something similar to this Parisian Attache. If I could, I would have a one of a kind piece of functional and fun luggage that would be a piece of art.
So began my latest creative journey. I was so excited to find an old piece of hard-sided Samsonite luggage at a second hand store.
Picked up a couple of yards of fabulous fabric from a locally owned craft store, and attached it to the outside with a coat of Mod Podge. I used fabric glue to adhere some braided trim to finish off the edges.
Two coats of Golden's Heavy Gel Medium in gloss for a nice waterproof finish.
I am so excited to try out my new creation, I can't wait to pack! My son has been in a study abroad program for the last three months, and so begins our latest adventure across the world for a visit. Our Journey will include Amsterdam, Rome, Sorrento, Capri, Pompeii, Prague and Paris. It might just be a little more fun with this fabulous new piece of luggage to carry all our treasures! Hoping you find some adventure, beauty, creativity and inspiration in your day!
