We seem to be dashing about a bit which is strange because we are having some time at home - at least it's all good stuff like visiting grandchildren, playing scrabble with friends, meeting up with friends for meals and for coffee!
I do have a page for Elizabeth's Summertime Love theme at Art Journal Journey though! I did it last weekend but haven't been on the computer much!
The page was painted yellow then I added some green and pink by lifting some leftover (still wet) paint from my plastic lid palette with a paper towel and laying it lightly on the page in a random fashion.
I stamped the Carabelle Studio Azoline stamp and then stamped the larger elements onto paper which I coloured and fussy cut to stick on. I went over all of the outlines to make them stand out more against the background.

Because we enjoyed some sunshine last week (for part of the time) I added the TH Chit Chat words when I got home! I hope the sun smiles on us this week too!

Thanks for looking, Chris

You will NEVER tire of flowers, will you, Chris? They are important in your art, and I always love when you share them with us. That background is SO unique and different, and I really, really LOVE how you used the leftover paint. Thanks for sharing this page that will make everyone smile at Art Journal Journey.

Sounds like you're having a lovely time (always a good sign when you don't get near the computer, I find!). Love your sunshine colours here - fabulous florals and texture in the background.
