journal quilt and some painting

Some great titles were offered for my most recent journal quilt. I have decided to follow the suggestion Celia gave me and call it 'Whipped Cream'. Thanks to you all for helping me with it.
One of my suitcases did not survive the latest trip to the USA so I had to search for a new one. On Amazon I saw wonderful multi colored ones, but I am not willing to pay around $ 300 for a suitcase. But seeing them gave me an idea. Why could I not decorate one? I bought a solid colored hard case, selected a couple of Golden fluid acrylics and painted this funky spiral on it:
To protect the painting I intend to tape a transparant contact paper over it. This suitcase I will recognise from a distance at the baggage carousel:-).
