Well, August is about over and soon we will be going into Fall so I am hanging onto every bit of summer warmth I can. This past week has been absolutely gorgeous, and I noticed the nights are beginning to get cooler and the sun is setting sooner, alas...
I have a few more pics to share from our beach week in Fenwick:
BTW- this photo is especially for you Chris-and your hubby. I think my hubby and yours would get on just fine:):) We always have a fresh lobster bake one dinner every year and Bill has gotten quite comfortable with it all. Sharing a sip (or two) of wine with Bleubeard and Elizabeth and friends at T Stands For Tuesday.
One evening Bill and I went across the street to the bayside to catch the sunset and it was stunning!:
These were taken with my PowerShot -no filters or photo editing. I did use the zoom for the last three shots.
For the Simon Wednesday Challenge , Tag Tuesday Challenge and the Simon Monday Challenge (themes are "Back to school" and "Study/School Related") I made this card with a tag:
Products: Tim Holtz Paper Dolls and Alpha Tiles; clothing tag; black, ivory cardstock; alphabet stamps (studio g); Versafine Onyx Black ink; Distress Vintage Photo ink; washi tape (Recollections); patterned paper (Colorbök); sewing machine with ivory thread.
And I am sharing the following journal page with Art Journal Journey (theme this month is Poetry In Motion), and Paint Party Friday:
Golden Cobalt Teal and Masters Touch Olive Green were scraped over the gessoed pg. Tim Holtz Honeycomb stencil was used with a baby wipe to pull color in areas. Hearts (Dina Wakley) were stamped using VersaMark ink then brushed with Pan Pastel in Ultramarine Blue over top. Face was lightly drawn with pencil then I went over it with a black Stabilo All pencil and waterbrush to soften lines. Next I went in with a bit of Neocolor II purple for some color and used a waterbrush on that. Fine lines were added to her hair with a black pen. Stamped the word (Dina Wakley) using Versafine Onyx Black ink. Spritzed Dylusions ink spray in Bubblegum Pink at the top and allowed it to drip down the page. The words were scribbled on with a black glaze pen. I was channeling the movie Titanic and Celine Dion's song for this page.
I want to thank you Jo for hosting at AJJ this month with your wonderful theme, for all your super entries, and for leaving lovely comments for everyone. You were a brilliant hostess!
And thanks to all the challenges hostesses and DT members for keeping us all inspired on a regular basis. Mwah!
