Saturated Canary Challenge 27- Office Supplies!

Hi there Peeps!!
Its time for a new challenge over on the Saturated Canary Challenge Blog and this week it was our gorgeous Caz's turn to pick our theme and ooooooh she came up with a fun one!!! This weeks challenge is to .....
Use Office Supplies on your creation.
How much fun is that? I loved altering this notebook yesterday. I took my little pile of officey stuff.......
 A notebook, file folder, paperclip,washi tape, yummy 'What the librarian reads' image and a cute little gromlet from my stash!! I also just had to add some string,a cute cloud journalling card Krista sent me a little while ago and her business card which I attached on with a mini bulldog clip that I glossy accented onto my notebook on top of some scraps of paper that I cut with my Fishtail Stax die-namics.

I ripped a little bit down the side and slid a bit of book page behind it,then sewed a little thread through it and tied it into a bow, cute!!

Here is a bit of a closer piccy of the part with my librarian on. I coloured her up to match the papers and the notepad and I love how she came out. She has glossy accents on her glasses and mug too. She is stuck down with a bit of washi tape.I added a couple of bits of paper from my scrap box and the little cloud attached with a paperclip. I really love the smashy feel of this little bit.

Last week I got an email asking how I do the colour on glasses to make them look real. First, thank you for saying they look real :) and how I do it is to colour up my image as normal, including the skin and eye colours through the glasses and then when that has all dried off I go over the lenses of the glasses with my satin promarker and add the glossy accents over the top.
 Glossy accents is kinda tricky to get a piccy of sometimes but it really does look cute so is well worth buying!!!

Well I will be hard at work while you all read this so I will be popping in on you all once I get home. Don't forget to pop in on my canary teamies over on the Saturated Canary Challenge Blog as their creations are roughly a zillion times better than mine so don't miss out!!!

Thank you for popping in on me
Huge hugs Lou xxxx
