Seeing as Sparkle is my OLW for 2015 and the vellum was so pretty I had to come up with another way to use it and see it every day. I was using an old metal pencil case for my Frixion erasable pens (have I told you lately how much I love them?!?). It was blue and had a picture of Shrek on it. Unfortunately I didn't take a before picture but here is a picture of the base to give you an idea of what it looked like (minus the Shrek image):
Pretty no? I guess I better add a coat of modge podge to protect the paint layer. I'll get on to that soon.
This piece fits a few challenges so I am entering it in the following challenges:
A Blog Named Hero - Personalize. This pencil case has been personalized to suit my tastes and theme (OLW) for the year. The details for the challenge are here .
Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesday - New. First I made a new embellishment for my planner with the vellum then I re-newed an old pencil case making it prettier making the vellum embellishment into something new. The details are here .
Southern Girls Challenge - Sparkle and Shine. The vellum says Sparkle and I added gold and silver paint and bling so that it really shines/sparkles. The details are here .
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes. A nice and easy theme! The details are here .
Inspiration Emporium - Fresh Start. The challenge says just get your mojo going and create; the sky's the limit, so I think this definitely fits that description. The pencil case has been given a new life (use) and a new look so I guess you can say it's been given a fresh start too. The details are here .
Vellum - DCWV; Paint Pens - Zig; Bling - Papervine; Liquid Pearls - Ranger; Washi
