Dans Ma Maison Il y a ... un ecolier



In my house there is a school kid. This is my entry for this week's Dans Ma Maison challenge.

I started with some images of letters and a school report card which I layered onto the background and then stamped various school related items and words in black Stazon. I then stamped some writing over the top and embossed it with clear embossing powder and inked the whole of the background. I added a bit of Perfect Pearls in various places and then added the mesh at the top and the musical notes. Next I added the lace (which I coloured using the same inks as the background) and the clock at the top which is an old watch face with the prongs of a brad poked through to make the hands, which show 9 o' clock, the beginning of the school day. Finally I added the vintage image with the word "genius" which is stamped on a piece of white card and edged with blue ink. I stuck the image on with silicone glue to make it stand out.

You can see the detail more clearly if you click on the photo to see the larger version.
