Back2School NotePad Holder August 29, 2011 10:50

My son starts back to school on wed., I wanted to make a little something for his aid. She is a very special person . While picking up some school supplies I grabbed a couple extra Post-it Notes and decided to make a note pad holder. I needed some inspiration and found a it Here

I first started out with the Back2School Digi Stamp,
I colored the bear with my colored pencils using the Gamsol Technique. I added
some Glossy Accents to the eyes and the pencil tip. I also applied some Pink
Cotton Candy Stickles to the ears, nose and eraser. But I still felt something
was missing, so I decided I was going to use Flock. I have all kinds of glue
but not something to use with the flocking. I tried the Glossy Accents and got
mixed results. It dried shinny in spots. But in the end it turned out OK. I
also used a Micro Sharpie to add some definition lines between the flocking and
then ended up doing the whole bear once the glue and flocking were dry.

I set my bear aside and created some flowers. I used a mixture of flower
files I have. I applied some Tsukineko Stain to them and once they dried I
applied some homemade Glimmer Mist using Pearl Ex Powders, a couple drops of
glue and some water in a Mini Mister. The leaf is from my stash of left over
cuttings. I believe it is from one of the cartridges, I will have to check my
handbooks to see which one. Used some Platinum Liquid Pearls in the center of
the flowers. Sprinkled some Martha Stewart Holiday Glitter, Crystal on
the rolled rose.   .

The cover is an empty Keebler Town House Flatbread box, Italian Herb to be
exact LOL. I used the stain again to add some distressing around the edges. I
cut some card stock and embossed it using one of my embossing folders. Punched
some photo corners and added a border to the inside using Martha Stewart border
