It’s Summertime!

I’m not exactly sure when it happened, but suddenly it’s summertime at the Lala’s!  J just graduated from 8th grade and is on her way to the high school and MD is now a senior in high school and is looking at colleges.  Lots of change, lots of stress.

I haven’t been able to get down to my craft table lately so I’ve brought my art journal up along with the Tim Holtz Distress crayons.image

I was watching a video from Vicky P – https://youtu.be/gwLej8heN5c about starting her summer and thought what a great idea.  Plus I need to work on my shading and outline skills.  I found a picture of some palm trees and a perfect beach chair and got to work.

Here is my page

Using all of the orange and yellow crayons I created the sand and using all of the blue crayons I made the sea.  I used my PITT Big markers to highlight, a Project Life black pen to outline and a Uniball white pen to add touches of sunlight.  The drink is actually a shovel from my Cricut Everyday Paper doll cartridge which I colored with Wink of Stella.  The sentiment is stamped in Stazon black and tells me what I should be doing!

I hope this little glimpse of summer inspires you to relax.  Have a Magical day!
