Feature Friday- I have a dream...

Hi everyone!  Tara C. here with another edition of Paper Wings Feature Friday.  As most of you know, Martin Luther King, Jr. is having a celebration of his birthday on Monday, January 21.  His actual birthday is January 15 and in honor of this great man I thought I would do a very small tribute to one of his most enduring speeches - 'I Have A Dream'

We all have dreams; the actual sleeping, REM kind of dreams and the hope and desire dreams of our future. This is a small dream journal that I created and it could be used to record either kind of dream, musings or a bit of all.

I started out with a small booklet from 7 Gypsies and painted the chipboard covers with acrylic paint in a soothing turquoise to coordinate with the Basic Grey 'What's Up' and 'Out of Print' paper that I used.  The front of the journal is highlighted with this sweet sentiment from the PWP 'Earth and Sky' stamp set and then accented with lots of stamps from 'Kind Words', 'Details Framer', 'Earth and Sky' and 'Butterfly Panel'.  I added in some colorful gems, a metal accent and the ribbon used is actually from a recent PWP order I received in the mail!

The inside of the cover is also stamped with images from the same sets and I also used the 'Double Dot Border'.  The frame outline would be perfect to write: This Journal belongs to....

Next are some of the pages of the book that are just the right size to write down the most pressing thoughts of the day.  Each has been decorated with all of the same stamps and I added a small tag on each page stamped with a sweet little saying from the very dapper 'Marcel' collection

I hope you enjoyed this dream journal and that it inspires you to create your very own.  We would love to see what you make with Paper Wings Productions stamps!  Add your creations to our Flickr group, to Pinterest, or leave a comment with a link to your project.  Thanks for checking us out today.  Have a great weekend and enjoy your MLK, Jr. Day!
