The Beach

Long time, right? Yeah, sorry, I've been sick and that sucks. But I have this layout that I made on the 11th that I haven't gotten to share with you yet. I'm not really much of a beach goer, even though we live in CA (technically in the mountains though), but we went out to the coast on my birthday weekend and I snapped a few photos of Sirius enjoying the waves. I had to get a picture of his little sandy paws as his Daddy carried him over to the shower station to wash him off. So cute! I used a combination of papers, but the background is from SS Good Day Sunshine.

Watercolour Wednesday: Something Fishy!

It's Watercolour Wednesday and there's something fishy going on in the craft corner! Isn't he cute? I just woke up, and there he was in my mind waiting to be drawn and to swim away. I used my India Inks mixed with water to make the background first, then coloured the fishy with more India ink and my Derwent pencils. I was just going to go with orange, originally, but I thought a bit of pink might add a nice contrast to his colouring.

I hope you like today's project. I just love drawing fish, they're so free and happy they just cheer me right up. Have a great day!

Project Life 2014: Week 29

Hello, everyone! Today's Project Life page is bright and colourful. There were a few multicoloured cards in my July Gossamer Blue kit for this month and I figured they'd go great for including a picture of some watercolour art, as well as all the organising that went on this week.I didn't really know how to use the ampersand card (aside from Me & You which seems trite) so I just made it the date card and let it shine on its own. I used a lot of little wood veneer, the banners that came in the kit, and I even managed to get some washi tape on there. Definitely trying to use up that washi!

Thanks for joining me, and I'll see you next week for PL Sunday!
