October Artful Bag Challenge

I started out with a small wooden pencil case




I used small pieces of torn pink and orange tissue paper. I made a solution of Elmar's glue and water. I then painted over the tissue. I added a knob, painted it gold.



I used small pieces of leopard print tissue paper for the inside.


I added a ponytail holder to hold the bag closed





This is the finished clutch purse. It's ideal for that evening out.
It fits nicely in the palm of your hand.


A big thank you goes out to Anna at Frosted Petunians for making this challenge possible. Please check out her blog for more Artful Bags

Linda, this is really cool and pretty! Very creative! I think you should add some of your photography to your Etsy store! Have a great one ;o)

This is a great transformation Linda! So clever! I love how you used tissue to add texture and pattern, and I love the leopard print inside. The little knob and the band to hold it together are perfect! Thank you so much for linking up.

Orange and pink together look so awesome to me! It reminds me of sherbet!
