Captain Owen is on his way with The Paper Nest Dolls

For my inspiration this week for The Paper Nest Dolls, I created a Travel Log, inspired by this awesome image of Captain Owen, and my trip to Manitoulin Island :)

I am currently enjoying my trip, but I worked hard to get this finished for you before I left!

I colored Captain Owen using my Copics, Prismacolor Markers, and Prismacolor Premiere Pencils in the following colors:

Hat/Shirt:  Y11, B00                                               Dog:  E11
PC915, 942, 1034, 903, 906, 901                          PC945, 944, 948
Hair:  E11                                                               Heart:  R22
PC945, 944, 948                                                    PC925, 937
Skin:  E000                                                            Spyglass:  PB108
PC927, 939, 1031                                                  PC1060, 935
Boat:  E13                                                              Sail:  E53
PC997, 1082, 946                                                  PC941, 947, 948

The paper is from the Authentique Abroad 6 x 6 pad, and the anchors are die cut from a Lifestyle Crafts Die.  The headings are stamped using an alphabet stamp set from Recollections.

I love the idea of a travel log, and this is the second one I've made.  The first was an altered composition book, which I created for my daughter who loves to sail :)  She is currently on her way to me after being away for six weeks at a cadet camp for sailing.  I miss her so much, can't wait to get her back!  I am waiting for her on Manitoulin Island right now, and that was another inspiration for this project.  This will be the first time I make this twelve hour drive totally by myself.  Could be a long drive for sure, and I am prepared to spend the night half way.  For those that don't know the area, half way will be around Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario and there is a really nice KOA campground there that we usually stay at on our way through.  So with that being said, this was the last project I needed to get finished before I leave, and now that I have finished, its time to clean and pack!

This was such a fun image, and you can find it in rubber stamp form on The Paper Nest Dolls website, along with many more awesome stamp images from Christine Paperdolls.  Don't forget to come and fins us on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest, as well as the challenge blog where you can win awesome PND prizes!  See you there, and see you soon!
