Back to School Swap


With school starting, another ATC Swap I joined was themed: Back to School. 

I originally thought of school buses and that large printing paper we all used when first learning to write.  I was having difficulty coming up with stamps or ephemera to go along with the thoughts in my head until I realized I could do a "chalk board".  So I busted out my Distress Paint (black soot & picket fence) and my Memento Ink pad in White and went to town!

I particularly like who the Geography and Anatomy cards turned out.  And I am always glad to find more uses for stamps I bought for a single project!

No one uses chalkboards in school anymore which is unfortunate.  I miss clapping erasers and the fun of watching those white dust circles appear as things were erased.  What I don't miss, however, is the sound of squeaking chalk and that one class asshole who had to run his nails down the board!

White boards just aren't as much fun!

Laters y'all!
