Hi everyone. The heat is here and it is making life a slow moving Sunday morning. I've watched quite a few movies in the last couple of days and also lounged in the lake at my mother-in-laws, which felt good but wasn't even all that cool once you climbed out of the water. (And then had to reslather yourself with sunscreen, and then 20 minutes later you're back in because it is hot in the afternoon sun. Smile) But I will admit, it was still better than not, and the dogs had many nice swims too. (Making them clean and fluffy today.) Nothing is better than clean and fluffy dogs. (Just like clean sheets on a bed)
So back in the spring I found these cool journals on sale. They don't have tons of pages, but the pages they do have open up, as I shall show you.
I've been working on one of the 2 I bought. I'm making a theme journal with one of my favorite art topics.
I painted the background and used a lot of collage items and stickers to make my spread. I picked up a vintage ocean collage image set off of Etsy back in the spring also (Scrappybird seller) which was only $5.00 for 60 images which I used a few on this spread. I also used a few stickers and images from my stash, including the quote, as well as a bit of scrap tissue paper also.
I am linking up with Chris's fun theme of We're All/Going this time to the Ocean for another refreshing swim! Check out this challenge over at Art Journal Journey.
That's all for me today. Hope you are staying cool and having a good weekend.
