Elizabeth and Bluebeard! Here is the first lunch we had on our vacation at the beach. My glass holds diet Coke (they didn't have Pepsi :( ), and we were at Pismo Fish and Chips right after coming off the beach. Dummy me, didn't bring a top to go over my swim suit, just a zip up sweat shirt jacket. Coming off the beach, it got hot (well for over there it was hot) I couldn't take my jacket off, and I was really starting to get uncomfortable, so I bought one of their T-shirts, slipped it over my suit and had lunch. One way to get a souvenir....LOL A black one with a white skeleton of a fish on it, plus a nice little sunburn to cover. The rest of the week I remembered to grab an extra top if we went to the sand.
I won't bore you with a ton of pictures, the DH figured out how to make the camera take lightning fast pictures, so there were like 450 pictures I had to go through this morning. Some were of people we don't even know, but it kept him busy........grin! I have an Adobe Photo Shop, and was playing around trying to do some collages, I managed to get one half-way descent. Of course it is of the GDs that were with us.
Their Daddy had just bought them each a Boogie Board and took them out to show them how to ride. Megan caught on right away, Hannah figured the water was just too cold.
We were on the "GO" everyday, so I'll space out the vacation through the week. So IF your are interested please check back.
I did grab a few "craft" things off Betsy as I was dashing out he door. I grabbed a big art journal and the small one I made for the trip, and a bag of water base markers with 3 small paint brushed and a couple of sharpies.
I did find JUST having the markers to be a real challenge, since I did not Gesso the pages before leaving. I ended up using a plastic top to a cookie container, scribbling the marker on it, then picking up the ink with water and brush. It was a "Forced" play with water colors.......LOL!!!!!
This is the front of the journal I made, it is 6" x 6". It Transfer paper, ironed onto a light weight cotton fabric, with a heavy water color paper for the pages
BUT before I sign out and head for bed (this is my traditional Monday night/ T- for Tuesday post LOL) I wanted to share some of the bigger journal.
|SOC color challenge #4 apple green, pink, and a pop of dark green|
|Journal 52 challenge 25 "Under the sea"|
Journal 52, for week 25 was a great one for where I was, but didn't really have time to get this finished. I had doodled it over coffee one morning, but never put color to it. I was going to color it in this morning, but decided I kinda liked it in black and white.
So that is it for this Tuesdays T(ea) post. Looking forward to next week. Elizabeth has asked us to do a "throw back" post, of one of our favorite T-days, should be really a fun one........but then Tuesdays are always fun with Elizabeth and "buddy"- Mr. Bluebeard
Let me know you came by for a visit!!
