Ah, there's more to this post than Spiderman, but I bet it got your attention huh?
A co-worker asked for decorated notebooks and pens for her son and daughter. The 'girly-girly' one was so fun and easy to do. The Spiderman one was easy too - but I had to find some "webbed" paper...you can see I did!
See that ric rac ribbon on the side and across the lower portion of the notebook? It was LIGHT PINK, really light...but I colored it chocolate with my new copic markers. YUMMY!! The ribbon lightened a bit when I applied mod podge to glue it down; but I love the variation in color. And while I was coloring...see that very bottom chocolate flower? Yep, colored that one too - it was stark white! And see the tiny flower on top? It was light pink...I made it hot pink. Such fun and they dry so quickly!
I used Emily Giovanni's tutorial for the beaded pen; I've made these before, but this time I ordered micro beads and I like them SO MUCH MORE!! The other beads I've used in the past are a larger size and just don't adhere quite as well.
Next is the Spiderman notebook and pen; I didn't add beads to this pen...I'm confident the young man will be glad I didn't! HA!
I love the Spiderman - he's so 3D!! All the Spiderman images are 3D stickers I picked up at Target.
I'll have some more Valentine gifts to post soon; hope you stop back by. Have a great week; hugs, ~M.
