Back to School with Michelle Perkett!


Hope everyone's having a good weekend. Today I've made a little notebook for my son. He goes back to school on Monday into Year 4, which he's not looking forward to, as he thinks the work's going to be a lot harder. I'm sure he'll be fine though!
 I've used the image Boy and Dog Bookplate by Michelle Perkett. You can find her fab images at her Etsy shop or at Bunny Zoes Crafts. Don't forget the challenge of Hang on to Summer is still active at Michelle Perkett Studios.



I've coloured the image with Promarkers, and then used a punch on the corners. I found a little paper pad in my stash, and made a cover with thick gold mirri card. I inked round all the edges with gold Versacolour. It was quite easy to do, just a matter of getting the measurements right.

I'm entering my little pad into these challenges:

Crazy 4 Challenges #53 - to make anything book related.
