ATC Files & LIPA Luggage

A couple of years ago, I was a tutor at Katyscorner Weekend Stamp Camp. A wonderful event I loved being part of. My project was an ATC wallet which was made with Origami pockets. Recently I found some of my samples and some were in component stages so I decided to make another one and finish some of the ones half made. 
                                             This the one I have just finished.
You can just see the pockets
The ATCs I made to go inside
This is one of my original samples below, using Distress Ink and bleaching out the face and hand.
Another Culture Trip
Outside LIPA ( the Liverpool Performing Arts Academy) which Paul MacCartney helped to fund and regularly supports, there is an interesting pavement sculpture of luggage, stacks of suitcases, guitar cases, hampers etc. 
Many have luggage labels or name plates on of famous people connected to the city ad there is a "who's who" list nearby on the wall. Here's Paul McCartney's guitar case.
At graduation time students in their caps and gowns pile over the cases to capture what must be a great photographic memory.

Oooh that would make a lovely gift Jo, thanks for sharing.

WOW you have so much to see and I'm so glad you think to take photos of it to share around as I wouldn't ever get to see anything like that, I didn't even know it existed - so a big thank you from me xxxxxx

Wonderful idea that ATC folder!

I have to show those guitar cases to my husband - he´s a Beatles-fan. Hes collecting old vinyl records - all started when he bought his first Beatles record at age of 7! He plays guitar, too. Thanks for sharing!
