The Gingersnap Office Temp



My penultimate post as a DT member of Gingersnap Creations. How time flies. The team are looking to recruit TWO new members this term and so if you are looking for more details check out the site.

This weeks challenge is all things Office Supplies.
I covered one of the handy notebooks from Art Journey with a background I made by spraying ontop of a few scattered paperclips. Once dry, I moved the paperclips out of the way and voilá! On top of that I added Stampotique Original's Karin and typewriter key letters and symbols from what was Inka, but has since been taken over by Scrolls Work. The images were coloured with pencils.



Please checkout the other DT ideas over on the Gingersnap Creations post. Its a fabulous challenge, why not have a go?
