# 188 Back to School

Hello there,

Over at myshericrafts design team sister Raquel has asked us to make a project which is related to 'back to school' or possibly college. As I have no one at school age anymore I decided to make a altered note book cover for a 6th former.

I first painted the cover in pink acrylic paint then added a piece of pink paper which had a fine blue line running through it. I stamped odd uplifting words all over along with tiny hearts, I also added a banner to the bottom then I cut the scribble line design die cut and added that. I cut flowers and leaves using scraps of paper and cut out the 'awesome' adjective from two scraps.
The image is coloured with my Promarkers and lifted using foam pads on top of a animal skin patterned paper. A few gems to the flowers, scattered a few sequins and finally added a tiny glitter gold heart.

Items used...
 simply amazing 
Spellbinders Flower die.
wings of love
amazing adjectives
Pennant die
scribble die

I will also enter this project in other challenges too.

Thanks for stopping by today.



  1. Sue, you did an amazing job with this note book. As I read through your process of creating this masterpiece, I can't help thinking of how long it took to do this. I absolutely love the idea of stamping the background paper with uplifting words to make it look like it was just that... a background paper. Every detail comes to life with each layer... very well thought out. Well done!
