My project for Belinda Basson's Design Team for Stamperia this month is a briefcase for Lady Vagabond using some of Belinda's newly released products. All of the Stamperia products I used are listed at the end of my post.
I have condensed the photos. I started with Stamperia Stone paper A3 size. I crumpled the paper over and over, gently spritzing with water each time, leaving it to dry and then doing it over again until it was wrinkled enough to resemble old leather.
I attached the stone paper to an MDF briefcase from my stash, it is quite big at 14" x 10" by 2.1/2" deep, using Stamperia Colla Gel Glue. Once dry I painted the whole suitcase with Allegro Paint in Earth colour.
I moved to the inside of the case and covered the whole inside with Lady Vagabond White Flowers Rice Paper, securing it with Colla Gel glue. I love this glue, it is clear and dries clear and can be used for sticking and sealing projects.
Next, I took a piece of Stamperia Rice Paper - luggage attached it to white card, but out the luggage and glued it to the inside of the briefcase. I also added some frames and pictures from Belinda's new range.
I used a couple of Belinda's new moulds to create the handle and locking mechanism and also the dials that I placed on the front of the case. The handle and locks were painted with Stamperia Allegro Paint in Brown and Metallic respectively.
The cogs on the front of the case are Belinda's Greyboard Gears, I gessoed them before painting them in a mix of Earth and Brick Red paint to give them a rusty appearance. I set them aside to dry.
I created the lock and handle with two of Belinds's new moulds, painted them and attached them to the top of the case.
I added the Rust Effect Rice Paper to the top left and bottom right of the case (front and back) using Colla Gel to glue and seal it, before adding the rusty cogs to the front of the case.
The gauges were created using another of Belinda's new moulds, I painted them in dark brown paint and then dry brushed them in brick red paint to highlight the details.
I didn't want any bulk on the back of the case so I simply added more rice paper to finish it off.
The finished case the perfect size to store my very large collection of Stamperia Rice papers, I love it!
Thanks so much for your visit, I hope you will check out Belinda's new Lifestyle range of Lady Vagabond products, they compliment the first release perfectly.
