This is my first attempt at something so big. I was asked by my friend to make a poster to put on her cabinet in her classroom where she will have some supplies that the children can buy and here it is. I have used very bright colors as her classroom is done in primary colors. It is a 12 x 12 poster made from a piece of wonderful cloth paper from Me and My Big Ideas which I bought at their last sale and layered with an 11 inch square of SU Whispering White. I also learned something that I didn't want to learn - after I finished embossing all the letters on the top, I was brushing it off and some of the EP smeared. Anyone else have a problem like that? I tried covering it up using rhinestones from one of the words made by Me and My Big Ideas and it did, for the most part, cover up the smudge. OY! But all in all, I had fun doing this. I used glossy paper for the pocket, circle and square. The circle and square open and have a message inside for the kids. I also stamped the crayon, pen, pencils, paint brush and marker on glossy paper and stuck them in the pocket. And I'm turning into a glitter addict thanks to my Sakura Quickie Glue pen. Thanks for looking and have an enjoyable day.
