This stupid boot on my right foot really makes it hard to go anywhere. Not only does my foot ache, I'm pretty much housebound. I really need to get to the library since I just finished my seventh book for Carly and my Summer Reading Marathon.
Carly and I have challenged ourselves since she first started to read. When we first started, she would read mostly picture books with few words and always outread me, but the last five or six years has found our numbers pretty close. So what we do is read, read, read from the last day of school to the first day of the new school year. One year, we both read 21 books! That's pretty amazing for a 2 1/2 month spread. Like I said, I just finished book seven. BTW, she's 21 now so we've been doing this for 15 years.
Boy, I got off on a completely different subject. LOL
I finished up another Art Journal entry this evening. This is an entry inspired by the Anything But Cute challenge site.
Here's the mood board:
And here's my finished project along with a close up:
I started the page with acrylic blue paint and some white bubble wrap circles. I added the "sand" by using Mudd Puddles Tahiti Sand that I purchased at the Scrapbook Expo two years ago - had to have it but of course this is the first time I've used it. The nautical stamps are from SU! (1998); shells also from SU!; migrating birds from Stampscapes (Rubber Paws goodie). Skeleton Leaf from Rubba Dub Dub (also from Rubber Paws). Small white rings were added by dipping a straw into white acrylic paint; handcut hearts shadowed with markers. The yellow circles were added by using the mini punchinella stencil from Balzar Designs.
I'm entering this in the Simon Says Monday Challenge site as well since this week is "Anything Goes". Click here to go to their website.
