ATS DT Wednesday Challenge

Good Morning! Today's challenge was a fun one! I was sitting at my craft desk thinking about what I wanted to alter when it came to mind that I'm always looking for a scratch piece of paper to jot something down on. Well, my desk isn't very neat most of the time, so I'm usually moving piles to find something to write on. Thus, this little note holder was imagined :)

I love the Summertime Fun set and everything I used for this is from that set. I colored everything with copic markers, ha ha you thought I was going to say prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits didn't you??? :) I painted the inside and the outside of the holder first to make sure my glue would stick to the surface and then on the inside I painted some Lil Davis glitter glaze to make the water glisten. (You can't see the sparkles from the pictures - sorry.) I used paper from Imaginisce and pop-dotted Lucky, Lulu, and Monkey so they stand out a bit. On the front, I punched the little stamps into circles and then matted them on Doodlebug sugar coated paper. I got the idea of using the little stamps as embellishments from Jen Ofiana. You can check out her amazing ideas here:

Your altered note box is SO cute, Jeanette! I love that 'water' paper you used as your background for those darling CCDesigns summer images. Very fun project!
