I wish I was back at school so I could use this diary for myself. Tilda is such a cool looking school girl, already for a big year of study.
I bought these stamps from Summer at www.rosesonpaper.com with another special project in mind (you'll have to wait till after Christmas for that), but I couldn't wait any longer to use them. A diary for my friend who has returned to school as a mature age student seemed a fitting time to use them.
I've coloured Tilda with Copic Markers and atyou Spica Markers, metallic gold pen was used for her glasses, shirt buttons and some of the binding on books.
The pencils and ruler were stamped onto shrinky dinks plastic, cut out, hole punched then heat shrunk. Co-ordinating ribbon has been attached to the spiral and acetate adhered for protection.
