1 + 2 = Stickles Blog Hop!

Welcome to the 1 + 2 = Stickles Blog Hop brought to you by the All that Stickles design team!

Back to school is just around the corner, and what better way to start off the school year then with a bit of sparkle?! Today the design team is showcasing all sorts of glittery back to school projects that kiddos and teachers will love!

If you've come from Laura's blog, you're in the right place! If you have just come across the hop and would like to start from the beginning, please visit All that Stickles.

For my project, I made a a daily journal (out of a composition book) that a elementary student might enjoy.

Hi All! 
 I hope you enjoy my Back to School Journal.  I covered the binding of the composition book with black/white polka dot washi tape.  Then I attached pink cardstock with Scor-Tape for a stronger hold than a tape runner.  I distressed the edges of the paper a bit.  The Back to School Girl from the Octopode Factory was colored with Copic Markers on X-press paper.  I added Glam Pink and True Blue Stickles on the girl and Black Diamond Stickles on the edges of the circles.  All paper is from Club Scrap.  The pencil is a royalty free clip art image I colored with Copics. The back of the book is covered with the same pink cardstock.  Coordinating printed paper was used on the inside of the cover.
