Artz De Scrap's Door Hanger challenge

I like this month's challenge over at Artz De Scrap so I decided to give it a go. I decided to make a door sign that I can hang at the office. I used a thin piece pf rectangular plywood as base. I then covered it with brown cardstock and embellished it with chiboards and a piece of ribbon.

The flower stems and butterfly were painted with crackle paint and then coated with Sepia Accents for a glossy finish. I then added some blings on the butterfly.

The most fun past is the mini notepad which I made using scraps of paper and cardstock and bound using the Bind It All machine. I made the usual signs you can see in the office like "IN - welcome" or "Busy - Do Not Disturb". I also added funny ones like "is Eating - Keep Out" and "is Grouchy - High Voltage".

The bound mini-book is inserted in a small slot in the CS that covers the plywood. It slips in and out easily to change the door sign.
The door hanger is now hanging by a hook on my office door.

Materials used:
  • Mostly scraps from my Studio Calico Sept. 08 Kit Looking Glass - BG and Sassafras papers and chipboards
  • Scenic Route and MM alpha stickers
  • Maya Road and MAMBI rubons
  • 7 Gypsies stickers
Thanks for looking!

nice work, Alby! I wonder though how your colleagues' reactions to this artful piece in a rather drab office? Or is yours an exception? :-) Would be interested to know?

Thanks girls! My favorite message is the "Grouchy" one but I have yet to hang that message. Our president might pass by and it might get me in trouble. Haha!
