I've seen lots of cool examples over at the Craft Attitude Facebook Page on how to personalize your iPhone, but I rarely use mine unless I am travelling. So instead, I thought - why not try my hand at repurposing a rather lack-lustre handbag.
I found this one at Winner's with a substantial discount and it was a light color. Since I was introduced to Craft Attitude about two years ago, I always have my eye open for light colored and inexpensive 'objects' to add some "Attitude" to!
Plain Old Inexpensive Handbag
This month I seem to be drawn to a color pallette that is half Bolliewoodish and have Bohemian and so once I`d layered a suitable number of images (courtesy of Iktupilli and Tumble Fish Studio) I adjusted the color pallettes to suit a brightly colored motif:

Front of Bag - digital collage
I used 3 sheets of Craft Attitude (you can use any type of Attitude product) - they are all the same just different packaging.....trust me on that!
And above is a photograph of the ALL of the supplies you need to make your handbag (gluestick,
scissors, x-acto knife, brayer....easy-peasy.
I really did not expect it to be this easy. The fabric of the handbag (100% polyester) seemed to be the perfect match for the Craft Attitude. I am NOT shy with the glue stick, - just sayin....please do not try to skimp on the glue or you may end up with bubbles underneath. Not pretty. I NEVER have any bubbles. I sometimes have globs of glue on my hands at the end of it all, but NO Bubbles EVER.
Here are a few snap shots I took randomly in an effort to capture how beautifully the Craft Attitude molded to the fabric of the bag - I will be looking for more of this material!!
I remain impressed at how the film becomes part of the texture...if you look closely you can see slightly raised dots on the surface of the purse.

PS - I could not stop at just the bag.....I will be back in a few days with photos of.....I bet you can you guess what I made next? Stay tuned.
Thanks for the visit - and as always, your comments are always appreciated...more than you know!
