Hey y'all! Okay so today I really wanted to just play with some paper and some paint and some stamps. Well if you read my bloggie regularly you know I've really been getting into mixed media art journaling stuff! LOVE it btw. Its so liberating and free of rules. I love that. Well anyway my kids have been loving the art journals and they all want their own. So I've been helping them around the paint area but I wanted to make a special something for one of them who is just wanting to write the words to his own story and not draw the pictures. I can dig that lol. He is such a free mind so I guess the pictures give him focus? I don't know. Either way here is what I did for him. Also, I love Market Street Stamps and I'm uber excited they started doing challenges. This is the first and I'm really going to attempt to play along always. Here is my first play along.

Here's a list of What was used:
Ink- Basic Black (Stampin Up)
Embellishments- metal brad (Stampin Up), stickles, glossy accents, dryer sheets
Blast Off (Market Street Stamps) for the stars, words, and rocket
Tools- Crop a dile to punch a whole in the dryer sheets (stars), big shot, yellow star die, sewing machine and thread
Paper- brown paper lunch sack and one page of Voyage of Dawn Treasure (one of his favorite books, don't worry it was an extra)
Adhesive- glue gun, glue stick
Color medium- white gel pen for a few of the stars and outlining the sentiment. Turquoise, purple and yellow acrylic paint.
