Happy summery feeling Saturday from New Hampshire everyone. We are hot and humid today, beach weather. This morning I want to go do a few chores and then we have plans to go to my mother-in-laws this afternoon. She lives on a little pond, so I might even venture in for my first swim. The water is still cold but I just may have to do it to say I did. My mother-in-law is a lobster lover (she eats it like every other week) so tonight we are having lobsters there for dinner, which should be a fun time. My sister-in-law and her daughter will be there too so it will almost be like a little party. Luckily lobsters are on sale for $4.99 a pound, which is cheaper than hamburgers right now.
Sounds like the rest of our weekend isn't going to be as warm or sunny so I'm glad to have today to have a bit of summer fun.
So some of you might remember that last weekend we tried boating but the engine blew a plug and we started taking on water. In my spring-summer journal I made a page to commemorate that sad and and adventurous event. (Here's the original post Not All Journeys Are Smooth Sailing.)
So I used a background sprayed with a bit of blue ink. I did a bit of doodling (the waves and the rope border), a bit of stamping (the center vintage boat ad, the rope frame, the ore, the water level sign)) and lots of painting. Then I used the metal compass and and the title sticker. I thought I was done at this point, but when I was looking for another water sticker, I found a very old sheet of boat stickers I had. So I added the boat and the life jacket and I thought they really finished my page perfectly.
So this month the theme is journeys at Art Journal Journey, so I linking up my page.
Hope everyone has a great Saturday and that your weekend has started off in a good way.
Thanks for visiting.
