Breezing Thru Summer
Hello peeps! Yes, I am still in beach mode and definitely taking in what's left of summer. Another heat wave has begun and is expected to last a few days but I'm not complaining. Summer goes away too quickly for my liking. If you have a favorite season don't you find that it goes by much quicker than the others?
Let's begin with a light summer breakfast today shall we?
A favorite treat of mine- a small slice of homemade sponge cake with watermelon and blueberries on the side. And coffee of course! Joining in with T Stands For Tuesday (link in with a beverage related pic or piece of art- like my next card:) Feel free to join us anytime!
For the Simon Wednesday Challenge (Food/Drink) I have this card:
and another view:
Products: Neena Classic Coat #110 cardstock; Archival inks- Sepia, Jet Black; Distress ink- Vintage Photo; Distress Oxide ink- Cracked Pistachio; Darkroom Door Coffee Time stamp set; washi tape (Recollections); foam adhesive; heart pin (JoAnn Stores).
A tag meant for the Simon Monday Challenge (Fall/Autumn):
Products: manila tag; flocked paper (Making Memories); Tim Holtz Paper Dolls; Versafine Onyx Black ink; sentiment tag and Baker's twine (Recollections); Jack o Lantern, cat sticker (Nicole Crafts- AC Moore); black German dresden (Collage Stuff).
And for Paint Party Friday, and Art Journal Journey (theme is count your blessings):
I am again counting my blessings to be able to spend several times a year at the beach and especially to live close enough to drive there. For this quick and easy page I used spray inks, texture paste, mechanical pencil, and sentiment sticker from Tim Holtz.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I will be around to visit you too!
" Wouldn't it be nice to positively start each day by counting your blessings? Isn't it obvious that the habit of counting your problems is an enemy to your peace of mind? "
