Today the summer is a wide open canvas for me to paint. I just LOVE the feeling of having such a big chunk of time spread out before me without the rigidity of a work schedule. Or a summer schedule. It was a tough school year-oh I can say WAS instead of IS. :)
I think my first summer project is to pick up my house a bit though. I've been busy the last few weeks and my poor house is screaming at me for a little TLC. Not only the house but my clean play space now looks like a storm blew through.
So today's journal page is a really simple one. I collages the torn pieces from 2 Gelli prints (on deli wrap) for my background. I left the edge white on purpose. Then I added the face, which is not mine but cut out from an old FLOW magazine. I doodled the border and added a sticker.
So I also have a few ocean photos to show you. We went out in our boat on the ocean for the first time this season this past Sunday.
We saw some interesting things.
Two very large ships.
Paddle boarding dogs.
Fishing people and some others on the jetty.
Old houses, long empty.
A boat in a plastic bubble.
Open tread on a bridge, viewed from underneath.
Ropes hanging from the side of a boat.
And also, the bald eagles must be back at their nest on one of the little islands in the harbor. Here's one of them, but I don't know if this is mama or papa.
And another view of the bald eagle flying high.
I have a few more photos to show you again some other time, but for today, that's all for me. Enjoy your day.
Thanks for visiting.
