McMahon Five Designs

Have I mentioned I love Thursdays?!?! I really really do. Today we have some awesome new releases over at McMahon Five Designs. Please go on over and check them out when you get a chance.

I am working with The Crow image!!! (LOVE)

Here is what I did I actually made an art journal. I'm really big on these these days! Please let me know what you think.

Here's a list of What was used:
Ink- Printer ink (Fabulous digi)
Embellishments- Twine, Stickles, staples, fabric scraps
Stamps- The Crow
Extras- I used a lot of different acrylic paints, mod podge, gesso, and black ink for the sentiment, Ranger Mini Misters (filled with water) Love these!

Paper- This started as a plain white piece of cardstock and evolved from there. The only other piece of paper on it is a piece of an old dictionary on the front.
Adhesive-mod podge, glue stick
Color medium- white, red and navy acrylic paint, as well as gesso. The beautiful digi was colored in with oil pastels and prismacolor

Please stop on by and see what my fabulous DT Sisters made for your viewing pleasure.


I am also entering this into the following challenges:
Gingerloft Challenge
Ambers Crafts and Stuff (My new technique is book binding)
Paper Pretties Blog
