Back to school challenge #7

Back to school challenge
Victorine Originals challenge blog

Good morning crafty friends.
Today is the start of a new challenge over on the Victorine Originals blog.

We have a new and yet another wonderful mood board for inspiration for you.

Isnt it pretty neat???

You can use anything that inspires you from the pictures,  you can go with the theme or you can go with one of the colors.
So many different ways to enter a project.

My inspiration for you today is a wooden paper weight/sign for a teachers desk.



I found this wood peice on clearance that the dollar store. And I made it my own. I started off by using gesso to cover it up and get it ready for new paint. I painted the front and back portions in the green, red, blue and yellow. Once that was dry , I was able to use washi tape and tape off what I wanted to stay and what I wanted outlined in black. I painted the black and let that dry. Then I removed the washi tape. 
At this point I thought about stamping on paper and attaching the paper to the wood because if I messed up stamping. I would have to repaint before I could stamp again. But I took the chance and stamped directly on the wood with each stamp. I used the pencil 74536-B,  
From Victorine Originals.

Arent these such cute stamps??? 
You can own them too and they wont cost you very much either which is a win win!!

Make sure you head over to the blog and check out all the details plus the rest of the DT has some amazing projects to show you to get you inspired. 
I hope to see your next project linked up this go round.
Thanks for stopping by. 
Hugs
Amy
