Hi everyone. Today I have a couple of pieces of art to show you.
First of all Joan's challenge over at Tag Tuesday is the Beach. So I made a shaped tag.
I don't know why but the idea of a plastic bucket and shovel popped into my head. The kind little kids have when they sit and dig in the sand. The kind that they use when they fill the bucket with sand and then tip it to make a sand castle. It brought back memories of when my daughter was a toddler and would play in the sand.
Its actually double tag.The shovel comes out of the bucket. I painted some paper and then drew the shovel and bucket, cut them out, and added some details with markers. Then I added some die cuts that I colored or painted, and I stamped the sun, painted it and fussy cut it. I wanted the bucket to represent both my beach memories and also some beach things like starfish, shells and seagulls, of course.
And I wanted to participate one more time at Rosie's Circle challenge at Art Journal Journey one more time before June becomes July.
Can you believe it is almost July?
I've had this page pressed under books for 2 days trying to get it to lie flat and it has somewhat flattened out, but not fully. It looks a little lopsided in this photo, but that is why.
So my background is made with layers of tissue paper, napkins and paint. I've also added some little stars, as well as my hand drawn and painted moon and a TH person. My scribble says He's a handsome man in the moon.
So where would you rather be-in space or on the ocean?
I'm definitely an ocean person but looking up into the night sky is pretty amazing too.
Hope its a beautiful late June day or starry night where ever you are.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.
