I have never decoupaged before, but from what I'd read, it seemed pretty easy. So I had a brilliant idea when watching the luggage carousel at the Vancouver International Airport. SO many people try to make their standard black suitcase stand out in a sea of black suitcases....but rainbow coloured suitcase belts are not my idea of cute. So I thought it might be a good idea to create decals or stickers that I could create myself and apply to my plain old black suitcase.
So in true Leslie style, I started gung ho, clipping out images, thinking "boy this is gonna look so cute on my suitcase. I have a big plastic bottom I can decoupage and I'll be able to tell my suitcase apart from everyone elses!" So I gathered up the images I had found and got my glue and went upstairs to where my suitcase was waiting......only to realize that my (new) suitcase does not have a plastic bottom, like my old heavy suitcase. Dang!
My brilliant plan was not so brilliant any more.
So I decoupaged on what little plastic existed....around the wheels and the bottom.
This isn't what I had hoped to create :( But hopefully this will help me find my bag a bit easier...since I'm headed to MEXICO tomorrow (Thursday!). If I have time I hope to create my own cute fabric luggage tags-again to assist in finding my bag on the luggage carousel.... but probably not before I leave.
If you're totally jealous of me, you should be! I'm headed to the Dreams Villmagna Resort in Nuevo Vallarta Mexico!
The Room! Complete with furnished balcony and outside Jacuzzi!
Ty & I will be down there for a week. I've been indoor tanning to ensure I'm not totally see-through, and almost every inch of my body has been waxed in anticipation for the trip! If you're a glutton for punishment, I'll post some of my pics when I get back!
