My husband asked me why I bought a black suitcase, as he thought it would look like everyone elses!  Well I had something else in mind!

  • By using a white paint pen I bought at my local art store, I free handed this design on my suitcase, Front and Back.  If you are not brave enough to freehand, use some chalk and you can go right over the lines with the paint pen, and wipe of any excess when paint is dry.
  • ***You may have to go over some areas more than once, as the paint soaks into the fiber.  By going over some areas more than once, you will have a stronger color.

  • WHAT YOU WILL NEED..... A pencil, fine tipped felt pen, and a medium tipped black Sharpy.
  • I sketched the design lightly with a graphite pencil, then traced the lines with a fine tipped felt pen.  I bought this one at an art supply store.
  • I then filled in the outline with a medium tipped  black Sharpy.  I added the white dots with a white paint pen.  And Wha La!!!!

  • I chose to paint a mid day sky which is quite an intense blue, by mixing ultramarine blue, white and a very little touch of red.

We have collected sea shells over the years.  They used to sit in a big box by the fish tank.  Here is what I came up with to display them.  
Maybe you have a collection.  This may give you an idea on how to display it.
  • First I layered beach sand on the bottom of a clear jar I bought at a discount store.
