Thalassophile - that's me!
The word comes from Greek origins and means "lover of the sea". Sadly and most likely we won't be having our beach week in Delaware with our friends- first summer in many years:(:( Delaware was just added to the "quarantine" list along with an increasing number of states. That means once we got back to PA we'd have to self quarantine for 14 days! Hubby is still working so he can't just take 14 days off with no pay. And another couple who go are in the same predicament. Oh how I miss seeing the ocean... so I will make do with many happy memories and creating beach/summer themed art.
The tag above is for Tag Tuesday's new challenge "The Sea". In two of the corners of the vintage image I used actual jingle shells I had collected over the years and just crushed some to put on my art projects.
In keeping with the theme of "When It's Hot" this month over at Art Journal Journey I have this journal page to share:
The colorful blue strips? They are painter's tape strips I had used to mask a border for another page and when I peeled them off I knew I had to reuse them in my art somehow! Page is in the Dina Wakley Blue Edition Media Journal. For the sunray stencil (Tim Holtz) I used Dina Wakley Lemon and a bit of Cheddar paints. Sentiment and image from a magazine clip art folder I keep. And I would SO love to have that dress:)
There is a special celebration going on at T Stands For Tuesday as it is the 7th year Bleubeard and Elizabeth of Altered Book Lover have been hosting. Stop by, give Elizabeth some love, and do visit the other links to see how varied our posts can be- and then join in won't you? It truly is a place I look forward to each week! Thank you for providing us such a lovely place to gather weekly and congratulations on 7 years- here's to many more!! Edited in: Forgive me for not visiting you Karen but I am not able to leave a comment on your blog:( Oh, I need a beverage related photo to link and here it is:
I made a batch of the Apple Cinnamon Quinoa for breakfast again:) We do love this! I have the link for the post that includes this recipe under the "Recipes" tab just below my blog header:)
Now on to my latest ICADS (Index Card a Day) Challenge I am participating in on Instagram:
Loving my self imposed challenge of using only a few paint colors or Gloss Sprays along with bits from the Collage Collective book (all Dina Wakley products), perhaps a tissue paper scrap, spatters, Posca pen marks for my one word affirmation card series.
And that does it for me this time around. Also happy to link with Paint Party Friday!
