UCCS is his college. Painted all of the matchbox. Gold and black are his school colors. I used a pounce brush to create the "world" and splashed drops of paints for the stars. Theme: He has the whole world beckoning for him. He just started Grad School. I love putting feet on the matchboxes. It makes them more "stately". (Can a matchbox be stately? Hmmm.)
