Images from the Life issue of Marilyn Monroe Skinny Dip! I hand painted this with acrylic and applied vintage vinyl roses from a table cloth and lots of wonderful glitter. From the love of Marilyn Collection. A smaller case about 24 inches wide, prefect for carry on

Catherine Reinke RECYCLED ARTIST
All my recycled suitcases are OOAK one of a kind . Most can be can be used on an airplane or as a carry on. They are created as works of art however. Use my suitcases as STORAGE , for DVD's, books, special clothes, treasures, and place them around your room like a piece of furniture.

I rarely will reuse an image in one of my works. I tend to cut right from the magazine or book, giving my work more uniqueness and value. I do not use digital images.

I am blogging more and more of my cases.
