Science Note Holder (KBD Aloha Friday Challenge #54 Mid Inspiration)

Hi everyone :-D 

Today I'm posting my mid-inspiration project for ongoing Aloha Friday Challenge at Kitty Bee Designs.

The challenge for this fortnight is #54 - School.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Bugaboo Digi Stamps, with an awesome prize for our random winner: 7 digital images of winner's choice.

For this challenge I made a magnetic Science Note Holder, using our sponsor's lovely image 'Bugaboo Brat School - Ruler Boy'.

Image is paper pieced and it has three layers.

I printed two images on a white 120 grams paper. I colored the skin (face, neck and hands) with colored pencils and and blended colors using dry paper stump. The rest of the image (hair, clothes and shoes) I colored in watercoloroing technique using Distress Inks fine paint brush and water.
TIP: When watercoloring image printed on printer, try to avoid black lines to prevent printer ink smearing. 

After drying, I fussy cut images and colored edges with black pen.
TIP: When fussy cutting, first cut away large pieces of paper and then cut on the lines. Rotate paper, it will be much easier to cut around tiny details. Color edges of fussy cut image with black pen or marker. This way you'll hide white edges and any white space you didn't cut off and your paper pieced image will look much better. 

Then I printed the third image on a white cardstock paper and glued fussy cut parts over it. Again, I fussy cut whole image, leaving white border, because I wanted to create a pocket on my project.

I made simple note holder from the cardstock paper, glued digital design paper panel on it, created pocket with the fussy cut image, decorated it with printed sentiment, enamel arrows and paper clip. At the end I glued 6 magnets on the back of the note holder.

Note Holder dimensions are 103 mm x 167 mm.
