A little inking fun!!!

So yesterday I wanted to do something different, out of the box for me. I altered a Maya Road album and turned it into my art journal. Right now I only have the cover done but not the i'll share it with you :) Let me just say that I had so much fun creating this and getting my hands dirty :):):) Here is one view of the album.

Here is another view so you can see the flower a little better.

Ok so what did I use on this?!?!?! Good question...I was just grabbing inks & stains left and right. I started with the album and used Ranger butterscotch color wash on the cover. There is also a little denium color wash in there. For my distress stains I used wild honey & peeled paint. Inks were distress ink faded jeans & brushed corduroy. I used some perfect pearls mist heirloom gold (my favorite)!! A little grungeboard for the flowers using the Tim Holtz alterations die tattered florals. A few Wendy Vecchi Art Parts, and I grabbed a Maya Road pin & crystal charm, Kaiser Craft pearl, Tim Holtz button & token charm. I used some Tim Holtz stamps & I think thats all :):):) All of this you can grab at The Scrapbooking Studio (locally or online)!!

Well thats all for today. I have a very busy day daughter has her junior high formal dance tonight and finds out if she made the high school cheer squard for her freshman year. Hope you all have a fabby weekend!!!
