Simon Says Stamp - Designer Spotlight - Week 3

Hello Friends

This is my third week in the Spotlight at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.
It is time for a new challenge and that challenge is 'Back to School'.



For my 'Back to School' project I created a Homework/study desk tidy using one of my favourite Eileen Hull dies - the versatile Card Box, Planner Storage and Organiser, along with Dina Wakley Heavy Body Paint, a Dina Wakley stencil, AALLandCreate stencil #28 and stamp #13.


I started by die cutting the Card Box, Planner Storage & Organiser from mount board, cutting two for my double storage box.
I used a brayer to add Dina Wakley Heavy Body paint (Ruby and Turquoise) directly to the mount board.  The paint was applied to one side only of both die cuts, as they were going to be glued together in the middle.

I applied Dina Wakley's stencil - Jumbled Numbers to one half of both of the painted die cuts, using Tim Holtz Distress Paint (Black Soot) applied with a blending tool.  I used a white Signo pen to highlight some of the numbers.

The insides of the die cuts were painted in Dina's Turquoise paint, applied with a brayer (not shown).

I assembled the boxes and joined two together back to back.
To create the notebook I brayered some more card using the same paints as before.  I think I might be slightly addicted to this type of painting.
I used AALLandCreate Stencil #28 and Black Embossing Paste on the cover.
The bookmark was stamped using AALLandCreate Stamp #13.  I attached the covers of the notebook with rings so that the Study Notes can lay flat.  The notebook fits nicely in the organiser.
