Altered notepad and fixing mistakes

Happy Tuesday...I know back to work after a long weekend here in the states...ugh...

This week at Jackson's Digital Expressions it's time for the Altered Art Challenge.  It's still Anything Goes and our sponsor this week is My Heart Pieces.  I've chosen to cover a notepad for my project.  I used a Robert Jackson new release image called Back to School.

Note paper stamp with matching die and sentiment all by Verve.  Scalloped bottom by Spellbinders.  And ruler washi tape I picked up at AC Moore for $1 and a 5 pack of notepads at Dollar Tree for $1
I had a friend tell me she liked a post where I showed how to fix a mistake I made (you can read it HERE) So I will do that from now on...thanks Linda.  Ok so here is my mistake because I just can't leave well enough alone!  When I was done coloring the crayon above I thought it would look good outlined with a fine tip marker.  Wrong!  I hated it!  And figured I ruined it.  However, I cut the crayon in half and positioned it so the top and bottom of crayon was showing from behind the paper but the letters were not.  Wasn't my initial plan but I think it looks ok  :)
Thanks for stopping by!  And come join us at JDE this week with your projects!

I really like the way the crayon is positioned! I think it's cool that you show your mistakes and how you eventually changed the product to make it work.

That's so cool the ruler is washi tape. I'm fascinated by this tape; need to get my hands on some and do more crafting!
