GCD STUDIOS September Project...give that teacher an apple!

 
It's that time again....back to school time that is!  We were to be inspired by the fun picture up above.  I kept thinking ...black boards, black boards, black boards.  Also what popped into my mind are those vintage style journal notebooks with the black spines.  You can see the socks up above that look just like that.  I decided to make a fun teacher's gift set....something to say "thank-you" for all that hard work.  I used GCD Studio's Artsy Urban line papers, Artsy Urban felt borders, and if you look closely I am now getting my feet wet with the Melody Ross's embossing tool.  I did a little fun touch by embossing stars onto my chipboard star.  I than went over the star with some distressing ink....looks a lot like leather.  SOOOO very cool.  Love the effect you get with this.  Can't wait to play more with it.  HOpe you like my take on the "school theme".   Hugs to all, Cherry
