It's Summer, and Anything Goes!


   Couldn't resist beginning with the title and this poster:) Is it cooling off yet where you are in the Northern hemisphere? We had a day or so of more tolerable weather but now the heat and humidity are back on! No wonder I just don't have my usual energy...

 Anyway, we had a most enjoyable music filled weekend including seeing "Anything Goes" at Muhlenberg College's theater on Saturday evening which is under a 10 mile drive to the next town. We had never seen anything here and I've always wanted to as they have such a great reputation for their shows as does DeSales University where we do frequent. This is a fabulous intimate theater and this show was FANTASTIC!! The acting, singing, and dancing was top notch, and well, it is Cole Porter music after all:)

 Then on Sunday we went downtown to again see Craig Thatcher and Nyke Van Wyk perform together:


 It was a FUN night as it always is with Craig (guitar) and Nyke's (violin) powerful playing!

For T stands for Tuesday I want to share the ATCs I made for the special celebration swap Bleubeard and Elizabeth hosted recently. I sent one to Erika, and I also made one for our wonderful T Stands for Tuesday host:


 I made paper tea bags from cardstock and glued on some actual recycled tea bag paper over top -although unfortunately it's not visible outside of the fact that it muted/aged the cardstock colors a bit.
Eileen has let me know that her ATC for me is in the mail and I will be sure to post it in my next post:)

 One last page for this month's theme (We're All/Going) at Art Journal Journey:


 Going to the beach! Background is a deli paper gelli plate print.

 Here are another set of index cards for the Index Card a Day Challenge as I have been posting them daily on Instagram. In my next post I'll share the last of them.

 For all of July's I have used Tim Holtz Collage Papers in either Symphony or Typography for the backgrounds and have kept with a vintage theme. If you have any questions about anything else just ask in the comments or send me an email:) 

 I will join Moo Mania and More (music) with the cards that have the musical notes on them, and Paint Party Friday later in the week. After that I will be taking a little blogging break to enjoy more of summer. Be happy, and be well.

  2. You've been a busy lady again Linda. All that amazing art. And some musical evenings. Sounds like you've had a fun week! Stay cool in this latest heat wave. I loved those cooler days and it is too bad it has to be this hot, isn't it? Happy T day. hugs-Erika

  3. Your index cards are amazing, Linda. You do beautiful work. And I love the journal page, with that great sentiment. Love that you used the deli paper gelli print. I have gelli prints on deli paper. Didn't think to use them on a journal page. Thanks for the tip. Happy T Day.

  4. More incredible art, Linda. I noticed there were two ATCs, but I thought maybe you kept one of them. It's nice to see the other recipient is Erika.

    Your journal page is wonderful. I bet you wish you WERE going to the beach about now. It's a lovely entry and perfect for Chris's theme at Art Journal Journey.

    I love your ICADs. Yours are SO much more dimensional than mine. I love each of yours and the vintage aspect works really well for you, even though it's out of your comfort zone.

    Thanks for sharing your journal entry, your ICADs, and your lovely tea inspired ATCs. And thanks again for the postcards, too.

  6. You made some wonderful art again this week, the ICADs are really fantastic. The concert was surely great. Glad your weather has got better. Today it's hotting up again, but 'they' are promising us cooler weather again from tomorrow, I so hope they are right. Enjoy your 'downtime' and have fun, happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  13. Wonderful art, Linda. I love all of your ICADS. Your ATCs are darling. I'm sorry your ATC from me hasn't arrived yet. Hopefully it'll be there any day now. I love Cole Porter too and performed (dancing and singing) in two community theater Cole retrospectives - what fun!

    Happy-T_day! Eileen xx

  17. You have been busy! Such fabulous artwork. We had a break from the heat and humidity, but it’s back. Though here on Enders Island, it doesn’t seem that bad as there’s always a breeze off the ocean. I don’t mind the heat or humidity. Beats shoveling snow. Stay cool and Happy T Day
