It's the first Monday of the month, which means it's time for another fun blog hop with the Designer Crafts Connection. This month our theme is back to school and/or creating with school supplies.
I remember collaging my spiral notebooks when I was in school, or sometimes doodling all over them, too. The only adhesive I used here was an Elmer's glue stick, a school supply staple for most kids.
I started with a sheet of vintage-themed cardstock - it's an image of an old watercolor paint tray. All the colors are pretty much the same shade of muddy rust from too much mixing without rinsing the brush in between - a typical school kid move, right?
I used each block as a frame for inspiring quotes and images of some of my favorite paintings from the romantic pre-Raphaelite period of the mid-nineteenth century. I added my initials, plus a few rub-ons and epoxy stickers.
