Happy Memories with MTE Stamps

Hi everyone,
My turn again to share another project with you all using
For my DT project this week i have went for Art Journaling using sentiments and words from hmmmm 6 sets!

What can i say except i love them. 

So here are the sets i used:


As some of you know i recently ventured into the world of Art Journaling and wanted to share a recent entry which brings back such happy memories with my two boys on days gone by at the park with Alex,Storm and of course a kite!
Happy Memories!
This is an old book that i picked up for next to nothing at a car boot sale and i love that it already looks so old and well used.
The right hand page has been fixed to the page underneath to create a pocket for a tag,the reverse of the tag has a little personal journaling for my boys.
So i cracked open the MTE stamps,Acrylic paints,Glue,Distress ink pad- Walnut Stain,Smooches,wicker heart and the little boy with the kite stamp is by John Byars{Nostalgia-Kite Flying} then messy, messy,messy with a paint brush and stamps..Bliss!!
If you have never had a go at journaling then have a go,don`t be scared there is no right or wrong way and you will have a grand time i promise!

Before i go have you checked out this months Challenge and new stamp?
