Well, it still feels very much like summer, here at least, with another heat wave of temps in the 90's F for several days and I'm hanging on to it despite working on some fall themed art;)
Here are my August calendar spreads:
For the T Stands For Tuesday peeps I have a special gift/favor to share from a recent baby shower:
Isn't this the cutest? Sorry about the reflection of me taking the pic but I wasn't able to do anything about that:) What a sweet kitchen timer!
Simon Says Stamp is having a huge month long birthday celebration filled with inspiration, new products and special gifts, and y'all know I do love to stamp and make cards... so this card is for the Simon Wednesday Challenge (Anything Goes), and the Simon Monday Challenge (Stamp It On):
and I never send out a card without some envelope decor:):)
Products: white notecard and envie (Recollections); Neena classic white #110 cardstock; Altenew Layered Cupcake stamp and die set, Label Love stamp set; Versafine Onyx Black ink; StazOn Chai Latte ink; Archival Wendy Vecchi inks- Aquamarine, Rose Madder, Buttercup; Marvy Uchida Ochre ink; Distress Worn Lipstick ink; Ranger Stickles glitter glue.
A fun tag for Tag Tuesday (theme is Time/Clocks):
Tim Holtz Distress tag, layering stencil- Clockwork, Paper Dolls, Quote Chips, Distress ink- Vintage Photo;; Dylusions ink sprays- Dirty Martini, Lemon Zest, London Blue; modeling paste; hemp cord (Darice); washi tape (unknown).
And lastly I will share what I call an "ugly " (to me) page. It can't always be pretty, right? This journal page was inspired by the sunset photo at the top of my post. I gave myself only 10 min. to grab a few supplies and complete something:
A few paints, gelli plate print deli scraps, tissue paper scrap, pencil, and a lovely washi tape from Eileen which I sadly covered up pretty much (I have more though:) Not sure if this counts towards the new theme of "A World Of Fantasy" hosted by the lovely Yvonne this month at Art Journal Journey(my fantasy/dream is to live at the beach) and if it doesn't you can just delete my entry. Also joining Paint Party Friday! A bientôt...
