October Blog Hop - Polka Dot Parade



This was very tasking for me this month as normally I use dots without thinking as accents but to use them as a main focal point was a different ball game all together so my first make was a long Jotter book having a play on words, I also anned the polka dots to the pencil afer giving it a good sand paper rubbing so that the ink would stay once stamped.

I also made a matching card and figured one would compliment the other.
