Hiya crafty friends,
I wanted to share with you a project I have been working on for the fabulous Shernocky Crafts‘s ‘One for the Men’ challenge that was run through my sister challenge blog last month.
I had a go at making an altered suitcase box..
That holds two ‘envelope page’ albums
I don’t know about you, but I always find masculine projects quite hard to do (I wonder why that is???) and it took me a while to finalise my ideas for this project. It’s been through many looks and changes, I can tell you. It didn’t start off being a suitcase, but took off on a life of it’s own 🙂 And this is the first large piece of altered art I have done ( it started out life as two Christmas cards boxes and a banana box…), but it all seems to come together in the end and I’m really pleased how it has came out.
I was so pleased when I found these little key hole brad 🙂
The washi tape I have had for ages (a freebie from a magazine) came in very use full 🙂
The page will be decorated as I fill the album up, to correspond with what is inside the envelope
