Autumn Is Slowly Approaching
Yes, autumn is coming SLOW but sure here. Despite the fact that last Wednesday we hit an all time record high of 93 degrees F!! And then the next day it dropped over 30 degrees and didn't get out of the low 50's - what crazy weather!!! So far it continues to be warm and I'm OK with it:)
The tag above is meant for the new themes at the Simon Monday Challenge (autumn/fall), and Tag Tuesday ( autumn). Products used: manila tag, Black Soot Distress Ink (Ranger); Tim Holtz Paper Dolls; patterned papers (the Paper Studio); vintage clip art (Crafty Secrets); stickers (Nicole- AC Moore).
For T Stands For Tuesday I'll share another meal and drink we had in Cape May a few weeks ago:
Another place we frequently visit and I've mentioned before is the Oyster Bay Restaurant. Here we always sit at the bar to eat. I've had their flatbreads before so this time I got the Caprese flatbread and it was delicious! Unfortunately things didn't go so well for Bill. His crab patty and waffle fries look so good don't they? This is the second dish because the first one came so quickly I couldn't believe it. Well, the whole meal was cold!! First time we ever had to have them take it back. We got a new plate and sadly- no better:( This time it was hot but the crab cake wasn't done and was practically ALL filler and mushy. The coleslaw that was soaking on the top of the bun made that mushy too (it used to be served on the side). Bill ate the fries and some of my flatbread but left the sandwich. We know the owner/chef and I am certain he did NOT make this because he is very fussy. There are other chefs who work with him too. What a disappointment. Our bartender apologized, took our drinks off the tab, we paid, and left.
OK, back to more art!
This is #6, the final mixed media page I did of a series of similar pieces earlier this year:
I gave links to my other pieces in this post.
This next journal page is meant for Art Journal Journey (dreams and wishes); and Moo Mania and More (count your blessings/thankfulness):
