Yup, It Is Summer

So here's another page for Art Journal Journey. This month the theme is time, and it is so much fun to think of "time" ideas, words and quotes. This one is kind of obvious, as it is summer. I had the sand dollar background already made, and then I used some transparent molding paste on it.  I kind of darkened it up a bit because I needed to add some dark ink to show the details from the molding paste.  But I like being able to stamp in white. The lovely ladies are one of TH's found relative cards, and I cut them out and then colored them in with Copics. I think they help brighten up the page.
So Monday is back again. Another busy week ahead, with some fun, some chores and I even go back for round 3 of being a kidney donor. Today I am back on the road, got to go help my mom organize and start packing for her move next month into assisted living.
It is always something in my life right now.

So look what I saw flying over me the other evening, and I happened to have my camera on me!
It was actually the second bald eagle I saw last week. But the first one was while I was driving. No way to take a photo then.
And a few summer blooms, just because on Monday I think some pretty flowers is always a good thing.

Hope your week starts off on a good foot, as they say!
