Yes...yes folks it is the 1st of September!! What the heck?! Where did the summer go? Well over at Mixed Media Mojo the 1st means it's time for a new challenge! Are you ready to play along with this one? The September challenge is "School Fun" with a "Book" twist! I don't have the Back To School happenings in my house anymore, my baby turned 22 in August. That said, I still browse the supply aisles just in case something needs to come home with me LOL
For my first project for the new challenge I completely redid a pencil case/art supply case. I received some wonderful products from Rita Barakat, I won a giveaway she had, and put them to good use!
|Here is the front of my re vamped pencil case. And see it fits some of my must have pens and glue and a waterbrush. It will fit more than what's in the picture :)|
|This is what the case looked like before I started. Then I used some gorgeous paints from Momenta in Teal and Copper.|
|One coat of this paint gave it a good cover.|
|I used the copper to edge the front of the case and stencil the word 'discover" from Dina Wakely's stencil. I also sponged some of the copper over the teal before I stenciled.|
|Leaf stamp from Emerald Creek and one of my Minis in Leaf Green|
|This is one of Wendy Vecchi's border stamps in Orange Blossom.|
|Tim Holtz quote stamp in Orange Blossom too. I love this colour, I need to use it more.|
|The finished project!|
I hope you swing by the Mixed Media Mojo Challenge Group on Facebook and see all the projects from the DT and don't forget to share your School Fun with a book twist project!
Thanks for stopping by everyone and have a wonderful Friday and fabulous long weekend!!
