WOYWW!

Acrylic paint chips for color

Some of you may remember the post of mine a few weeks ago about having the kitchen painted and having to empty all the drawers. I had all these pens and pencils!
I decided to decorate a plain journal with the pens. then decided to add some brushes.
Some broken crayons.
I often start out with an idea and then never finish the project.
This time I had to complete it!
I added strips of some of my fabrics to the rings.
erasers on the back so it could stand on a table!

See the reading glasses in the middle? (next to skull)
the purple "pen" holds the glasses!
Nun pencil topper
P and G scrabble tiles
Moon charm

Eraser feet

I hope to add some art work to my new journal !http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/
