Paddlin'...up the lake...

Look at this goofy girl with the goggles on and trying to paddle the tube.   She's a riot!   She doesn't even swim with goggles....

 



I played along this week with the Skissedilla sketch challenge just because!!!   I still have SO many summer photos to use up, and I am really going to try to tackle my summer papers stash to make way for all the new goodies coming my way soon!  :)  My summer layouts seem to have a pattern:  blues, yellows, and sequins.  I am hooked on the sequins and how they give my water pages a bit of sparkle.



On the background, I added some bright blue water colors, and then went over it with a circle stencil and some white paint and Frosted Sorbet from Art Anthology to give it some texture. I splattered some yellow and navy mists, and used a small polka dot stamp with some black ink.


I actually used some scraps that were sitting on my desk, along with some papers from my stash (mostly Studio Calico and Crate Paper).  Then I dug through my bin of die cuts and chipboard and found a few other pieces that worked, like these pennants from Basic Grey.



Even though summer is technically over, I will still be posting quite a lot over the next few weeks!

Stay scrappy my friends!
