My mind was still on the wonderful beach time I had spent recently with friends, and of course, all I had humming in my head was a line from a summer song..."hot fun in the summertime..." so I went with it.
The page began on a background of acrylic paints swiped on the pages with a credit card, which you can see on the top half. I grabbed some cardstock scraps and trimmed them with a scallop scissors to layer at the bottom. I made a sun and stamped the summer words in a bright red ink. The image I used for the sun face and at the bottom is from ARTchix Studio. I used my newly carved alphabet stamps to create the line from the song, and then to balance the page a bit better I stamped a sentiment to the left of the bathing beauty using Jet Black Staz-On ink.
Off to link up at Julie Balzer's blog and visit some of the other artists who shared their pages-that's always the best part! Anyone can play along at anytime - I'd love to see YOU there :)
