Dream Journal

 Hello friends

Hope you are all good!
I really cannot believe we are nearly 
half way through March and it will soon be Easter....this year is flying by!!

Today I'm sharing with you my "Dream Journal" 
created using the Eileen Hull travel journal die, along with a mash up of lots
 different products that I have in my stash but have not had chance to use.
The journal was cut using mount board which then I painted with gesso...
Next I built up lots of layers of paint, I used a mix of distress and decomedia paints. 
I painted using my fingers that way you don't get the brush marks. I then rubbed away some of the paint and repeated the process.
I added a layer of Rangers crackle medium and left it to dry.
The centre is made up using rusty wire, torn text, old watch parts, an optical lense and an idea-ology star, a vintage key and the words are from 7dots studio (paint chips)
Using the Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Merchant set (one of my new favourites!) I stamped in Archival ink, I also added some of the number remnant rub ons and a clock face to the lense.
I really didn't have any idea how the journal was going to end up (I never do!)....but I really enjoyed creating the layers for it. I will put it to good use and journal some of my many hopes and dreams...
Thank you so much for passing by the little shabby shed...feel free to leave a comment, I appreciate each and every one!

Have a great week!
