A new week ....

Hi Folks,
I'd like to welcome new follower, Pat Brennan, good to see you - hope you will stop back from time to time.
Bit of a photo heavy post again today but, pull up a chair and tuck in ..... first, some crafting to share. I've been enjoying experiments with Bleeding Art Tissue .....

And a close up of both the B.A.T. and the
water colours
Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Snippet of card treated with Bleeding Art Tissue in pink and orange
  • Art Impressions image stamped on to white card snippet using Ranger Archival watering can ink
  • Peerless Watercolours used to colour - flesh tint, orange yellow, pink geranium, japonica scarlet, sky blue, mahogany brown
  • Stardust stickles to highlight
  • Hero Arts sentiment stamped using Ranger Archival watering can ink
  • Memento rosebud ink swiped around the outer edged of the ATC to add interest
I'll be entering this for the following challenges:
Yesterday saw us up and out, first we went here ..

Bought NOTHING, not a darn thing, not even a drink!

And then we thought we'd play tourists ....

See life at a different angle?!??!

Clouding over? It was CHUCKING IT DOWN not far ahead of us but, by the time got there?

What the heck's a WHIRLY DOME?

The CUPCAKE LOUNGE? Next to a lighthouse?!?!?!

Mmmm ice cream

It's hot and sticky here and the line was LONG - glad WE weren't in it!

I bet this place will have been mobbed this past week or so - with temps in the 90°'s

See? Ground's wet but it's sunny!!!

Before ending up here for a donut and coffee lunch

Have a great week
