My page today is for Elizabeths great new theme 'Summertime Love' over at AJJ.
Summer to me means being out in the garden more and enjoying nature, looking forward to our annual airshow and the hustle and bustle of happy holiday makers down on the beach or pier where I live.
My page is digital as I seem to have done something to my index finger and having trouble gripping pen/brush etc at present so I'm a bit slower (than normal ha ha) doing things.
The background was created using a photo of one of my journal backgrounds with some digital alterations. The photos are of the Helter Skelter on our pier. The Seagull from a MCS kit. Splodges and splats extracted from some photos from my pages and also messy left overs and some pieces made digitally.
I did a couple of doodles on the keyboard I started to decorate in previous post before the finger incident ...
Todays pickings from the garden.. the French Beans are my favourite
The chard is ready chopped up for lunch today
Another useful thing in the garden - not for eating though.
This is our Himalayan Honeysuckle.
This is nothing like my idea of a honeysuckle,
its stems are more like Bamboo..
Could the stems be useful for other things maybe ..
I've got some bits of it drying - and wondering if they might work as wind chimes as they are nice and hollow. They also may be great to use to make a bug hotel... lots of ideas... but will they work... we will see.
that's my lot for today
Have a great week
and Happy Monday
