One Summer Dream

The SUMMER party continues with 2 more fabulous entries from Phoenix Peacock.  Her first entry was inspired by the Day 1 Prompt, "Sodas, Pretzels and Beer", and her 2nd spread was inspired by the prompt, "Go fishing or go swimming".  You can see both fabulous pages by using this link, and in addition, check out her night pages inspired by last week's "Night" prompts on my blog.  Phoenix submitted both pages as one link, but this will still qualify her for 2 more entries into the *ARTastic Giveaway!

I created this spread, "One Summer Dream", also inspired by ELO's song.  I painted the background by swirling Reeves Water Soluble Wax Pastels onto the pages and then rubbing white craft acrylic into it.  I created a "voluptuous me" on a separate page with the same acrylic into pastel technique, cut it out and applied it to the spread with Mod Podge.

One of the things I'm really enjoying about this journaling party is that it's given me a new appreciation for where I live.  We're creatures of habit and tend to take everyday things for granted.  We take the same routes week in and week out and barely notice what we see.  I've been looking for picturesque, summer views to share with you, and I'm seeing things from a new perspective.  This week, I've started a walking program at the beach.  Lake Erie was amazing yesterday.  It had stormed the night before and the lake was choppy and the beach was filled with gulls. I took lots of photos, and altered one of them  in "Paint". I was thinking about the prompt, "Bird on the wing goes floating by".

I hope you're enjoying the SUMMER party here at Angelia's Art Journals, and if you haven't had a chance to create some SUMMER pages, I hope you'll get a chance to do so this weekend.  If you've never shown your work before, don't be shy - you're among friends here.  To find out how to participate and be entered for a chance to win the *ARTastic Giveaway, go HERE.  No matter what else you do, have a wonderful, SUMMER day and "Happy Creating!"
