Artful Bag Challenge - February
For this month's Artful Bag Challenge, the theme is Alter It. The objective is to take any object that is NOT a bag and turn it into one. Here's my creation:
I took an empty microwave popcorn box and turned it into a movie lover's handbag. The purse handles are made of 'celluloid,' which I printed onto a transparency. I decorated the box with movie posters. And I also used magazine covers of silent screen stars of whom I am fond.
Citizen Kane is one of my favorite films.
Lillian Gish (on the cover of Photoplay) is another favorite silent film star. I was fortunate enough to see Miss Gish in person in the early 1980's when she appeared at a showing of one of her films.
