I have recently enjoyed a beautiful three week holiday in sunny QLD, I took a lot of my craft supplies with me and enjoyed some quiet time working in my art journal which was SO relaxing. Do you take your craft supplies away with you? I would love to hear.
Mel has set such a great challenge this month, I had a lot of fun working on this layout.
This is my layout.

To begin my layout I applied a coat of Gesso on my page with a mesh bag that you use to store onions in, this was part of my household item to create texture I also used some bubble wrap which I lightly applied some of the Dylusions Postbox red onto the page, I then used Dylusions paint in squeezed orange through a The Dusty Attic stencil, I made some marks with the Dylusions cut grass and splattered some mustard watercolour paint over the top. To finish  my background I used some Colour Blast paste in Steel and a stencil.  
I have used the Simple Stories Travel Notes paper range to complete my layout, I cut out various strips of paper from the patterned paper and added some strips of ribbon in there as well!
I added lots of different stickers from the sticker sheet and my title was cut out from one of the patterned sheets as well.
I was lucky enough to get my hands on this Kaisercraft die which I have added to the side of the left hand side photo and also another one behind the title. I love the look of these they are awesome!
So for Mel's Grab 5 I have used:
Dylusions Paints
Colour Blast Paste
Mesh onion bag
Bubble wrap
Stickers from the Sticker sheet
Stars and hearts which were also from the sticker sheet.

 It was so good to see so many entries last month in our challenge and a big congratulations to Heather for winning the challenge her layout was amazing!
