Upcycled purse

Upcycled purse is completely changed by covering with Tattered angels Mixed media origins paper (a cloth like paper) and paint.

The little purse was covered with a red vinyl that was damaged heavily on a side of it. The idea was to change the look of the purse and make it useful again.
