End of June already

Mid summer came & went in the rain and we are still waiting for decent weather that will last for more than a few hours at a time.

Bill & I managed an away night to Aviemore and the weather was only rained 3 times....once during the night, once whilst we visited the Highland wildlife park and that was only light rain for 5" but the 3rd time was an absolute deluge....fortunately for us we were in the car at the time because the rain came down in stair rods! It was a lovely time of year to visit the animal park as the babies were in evidence...

All quite delightful :-) 

I was a little slow off the mark with my creating this weekend however as the dog has had an upset stomach....

Colour me positive: celebration/ what you are grateful for...

My very first road trip way back in 1965....the first of many!

Art Prompts Galore: 
Scavenger: 3 scraps, junk mail, purple but not ink or paint, flower, bird, doily, napkin, texture.

A moose, a stag's head, floral bouquet are all scraps, purple appears in the ATC background & punched flowers (thank you Pam Harrison)- the washi tape scrap - the floral bouquet & the die cut bird that's been coloured with wax crayons! The doily is there providing some texture along with the yellow piece with the diamond die cuts in it.

Journal 52: red handed or barefoot

I always relish the weather warming up so I can give up socks and shoes as I spent so much of my childhood in flip flops!

My feet on the lawn :-)

DLP PAC: incorporate watercolours

Every inchie Monday : physics

Was not overly inspired this week :-(


  1. Love all the photos you shared. Your inchie says just what it needs to say and I love the splashes of color. Great journal pages too. I hope your doggy is feeling better!

  2. Wonderful photographs rain or not

    Great art pages and inchie as well

    Love Chrissie xx

  3. snap - hard to draw physics, isn't it ! I did the same thing - you are so prolific with your art - well done

  4. Lovely photos from your trip away Sally, at least you were safe and dry in the car. Awesome art pages, loved the one with the feet.

  6. Love the photos you show. We had a summer with so much rain some years ago. Hope you will get some nice weather soon.
    Great inchie.

  7. Those animals were so cool and the babies are beautiful! Love the painted toenails! The ichie is great as well

  8. Despite the rain looks like you had a lovely time in Aviemore - beautiful photos, great art pages and very good Inchie - great work

  9. Thanks for sharing the photographs. Love the artwork, especially the wool plaid deer you have there. What fun! CHeryl

  10. Love your photos, journal pages and inchie. You have been busy.

  11. Ahhh - too much adorableness at the wildlife park! Fab pages - I love the retro look and sunshine colours of the road trip one, and that plaid deer is a treat. I like how you've worked the daisies into your lawn and the watercolour inks are great both in the magenta and in your physics inchie.
