Back to school ....

Time for Tea sponsored this weeks atc challenge at Wicked Wednesday, the topic being : Back to school. We have teachers job action here in B.C., Canada at the moment so I am wondering if the kids will in fact return to school early September. We'll have to wait and see ....

My atc for this weeks challenge :
The digital stamp is called 'Apple for the Teacher', and she was a pleasure to work with. I paper pieced the dress and colored the rest of her with copics. After I paper pieced the dress, I actually added a layer of gel medium, and when it was dry I added some shading to the skirt with my green Faber Castell artist pit pen :) Lots of fussy cutting here, I think I must like it !

I loved the tight rope idea, and it was what sprung to mind as soon as I saw the image. I made the posts and drew the wood grain on. I added Close to My Heart square metal-looking embellishments to the posts - they were perfect for the job. I thought the wording was fun : 'What easy way?' means that sometimes we just take the most difficult route, I dont know why, we just do :)

Thanks for visiting, hope you found some inspiration here :)
