Laptop Cover

About a year or so ago I decided my laptop was too plain so I jazzed it up a little. Nothing too fancy, just a few rubons and a cute pink skull I cut out with my Cricut. But I decided it was time to change. I wanted a Girl on my laptop! I decided the best way to manage this was to use cardstock as my base and work from there. I stayed away from sprays because I figured those were too wet and would cause too much buckling, and I went light on the Mod Podge for the same reason. Of course it was still a bit warped but the heat gun smoothed out the biggest bumps! I think she turned out really cute! I ended up edging in orange this time for 3 reasons: 1) I saw someone else's She Art edged in orange and it looked great; 2) I'm trying to use more orange- growing to love it!; and 3) the laptop is black so I needed another color to pop! How did I attach it, you ask? Scotch tape. =o)
