Back To School

 Well hello there!  I can't believe it is September already!  Teri set the challenge this time at The Funkie Junkie Boutique and she has us thinking about back to school! 

Here is how she described the challenge: "Create something with books, alphabets or anything reminding you of learning!"

I started with the idea of vintage school days but ended up somewhere completely different. :)  

Well... I was thinking that witches had to go to school too?  

I took a children's book that was already torn and in sad shape and painted the front and back with white gesso. 

I added a layer of distress crackle paste through the ruler stencil.  Let that dry and then added some color with the antique linen and black soot distress sprays.

That made me thinking of Halloween and then I decided we were going to make a book for witches to go to school. 

Why not a book with enhchanted spells that they can learn!  There was a lot of embossing, spraying and painting in this fun book. 

Come play along with us in the challenge.  The overall winner will be offered the chance to be a Guest Designer at a future date at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the drawing for the chance to win a $25.00 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. There are also Top 3 Badges for three additional outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team.

 Thanks for stopping by!
