Motivation Magnet (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

Hi everyone! :o)

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this Motivation Magnet.

I made this magnet for my friend and school colleague, as a gift for the school year end.

I love a magnet I created a couple months ago (find it here) and decided to CASE it. I went with same design, layout and created a sky scene around the sentiment/quote. As a central part of my magnets, I hand lettered the quotation of Croatian writer Ivana Brlić Mažuranić on the original, while on today's magnet, I used a beautiful Jane's Doodles big bold sentiment from 'You Got This' stamp set.

How I made the magnet...

I cut a 3" x 3" base from a Canson XL Mixed Media Paper.

I stamped the sentiment from Jane's Doodles 'You Got This' stamp set on the base and after couple minutes of ink drying, Sun and clouds from adorable Jane's Doodles 'Home Sweet Home' stamp set.

My favorite coloring technique is watercoloring. Like on my CASEd magnet, I step out of my comfort zone and loosely watercolored the sky scene. I struggled because I like everything colored neat, but less than a first time. LOL

I cut a magnet square with adhesive on one side, nearly same size as colored base and glued them together.

Lastly, I pressed the magnet with a 32 cm x 32 cm, 1 cm thick glass plate and left it pressed for an hour. When I glue together two different surfaces, like in this case, paper and magnet, I always press my projects.

Dimensions: 77 mm x 77 mm (3" x 3")
