Color Me Crazy Winner........

I created this Artsy Journal to document my upcoming BEACH VACATION!! Knowing what I wanted to create.....

I began gathering my supplies:
Petaloo Color Me Flowers
Claudine Hellmuth Studio Acrylic Paint
(various colors) Multi Medium ~ Matte
Hero Arts ~ Sweet Threads
Ranger ~ Archival Ink & Peeled Paint Reinker Mixture
Bella Blvd ~ Alphas

Let the fun begin.......
I covered the Cover~All with dictionary pages with Multi Medium. 
Placed dabs of paint on my Craft Mat and began to color away!!!
I then stamped on the cover with Archival Ink.
I soaked up the left over paint with Petaloo Color Me flowers.
I dry brushed white paint over top of cover.
With my handy dandy Dreamkuts machine I cut PERFECT 6 x 6 pages for the inside of my book!
I then bound all my pages together with the A~MAZING Bind~it~All!!!
And there you have Beach Journal!!

I am sooooooo HAPPPPPY to say this album won First Place in the Altered Division
of the Petaloo Color Me Crazy Contest!!!!
