Shopping our Stash #117 - School/Office


This week at Shopping our Stash we're heading back to school - school/office supplies that is: use something that depicts school or a workplace/office theme- careers, office humour, or use a school supply or office supply on your card- paperclip, sticky note, ruler sticker,  etc.

It took me a while but I think I got it :)



Supplies: Flourishes stamp set; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Konnichiwa papers from Basic Grey; Prismacolor pencils; staple, spiral clip from stash


I used snippets of other papers in the collection to paper-piece the lanterns, and then added extra shading with my Prismacolor pencils. *love* how it turned out. 


And a close-up of my 'supplies' - the spiral clip, because if I worked in an office I would use cool supplies, and a staple. 


Come & play along with this challenge until next Monday,September 9th - hop on by & leave the rest of my teamies some love!


Back to counting down the minutes until school starts Thursday....
xoxo,
Jessi

I'll be singing the 'patio lanterns' song all day now "those patio lanterns they were the stars in my eyes...." LOL
Lovely work, keep smiling and creating.
PS I wrote you a note, well more like a book did you get it? Maybe it went into your spam?

Work is much more fun with cool supplies, for sure -- I had a stegosaurus stapler among other fun stuff. :) Fun take on the theme! Really like the lanterns.

A fabulous card, Jessi! I am loving how you stapled on the spiral clip! I have a zillion of those and the hardest thing is trying to figure out how to attach them to the card. You are a capital G enius!!
