Back to School: Not Just for Kids Any More

If you’re like me, you’re looking at all the flyers and ads for the cool new dorm furniture (I want a red coffee maker!) and maybe buying a package of crayons or a notebook or two (or three, or four….).  Let’s face it, back to school is fun, maybe more fun now that we don’t have to go back to school and can do whatever we want with our crayons, markers and notebooks.  (Do you remember when you were finally allowed to write with pen instead of pencil?  Purple paper? Crayola vs Cray Pas?)
In the spirit of starting something new, I am very happy to have a giveaway.  Mark Montano has very generously offered a signed copy of his amazing “Pulp Fiction: Perfect Paper Projects” for one lucky winner.  With 24 projects to choose from, you won’t be bored, and you will have use for all those back to school sale flyers :)

Here’s the cover.  I am really intrigued by the mask and the Mona Lisa briefcase.

You can see where he signed it, and a sneak peek at some of the projects.

I really like these lightweight earrings.

And of course no book on paper would be complete without a book project.  These mini journals are too cool.
I will throw in some of my painted papers and ephemera from my personal stash as well, just to sweeten the pot.
