Hi there everyone! Laura joining you today, with a fun project for back to school!
You see a lot of cute projects online for teachers, and younger students, so I
thought I'd share and idea for a project for an older student. Part of the
fun could be creating this project together, or you could make it and give
as a gift....it would make a great gift for a high school or college student!
One of the things I love to do is take a basic boring composition notebook,
and make it into something special. This one could be used as a fun
notebook for note taking, or it could be used for ideas, dreams, a daily
journal, so many options! And it's much more interesting than the
plain old composition notebook....who wouldn't be inspired by that?!
To create it is simple too! Take the notebook, and cut paper to fit,
and glue to the front cover. I did use a corner rounder on the right side,
but you could easily trim it to fit as well. To add a little extra something,
I sprinkled some distress spray stain on it.
To do this, place on a protected surface (cover your work surface with
newspaper, or take it outside on the lawn!) then ake out the sprayer, and
tap the plastic tubing over your project to get the splatter effect. You
can also use a toothbrush, but I like the control of this method better.
When that was dry, I went back and added some stencil images,
using gray paint and the Clear Scraps 6" spiral stencil.
The awesome chip Edison light bulbs, are the Clear Scraps
They are painted black, then I tapped on some orange paint,
then a little more black over that to give it a rusted look.
Then I used some random letter I had to put on my title.
Now all that's left is to decide who to gift this to!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
