Summertime

It's Summer!  and what do you - well - 'We're All  Going' ...……….on a Picnic.  A fun journal page for Chris's theme over at Art Journal Journey.  I've used part of a napkin that came in some 'happy mail' from my lovely friend Yvonne and as they're in the garden, there's a few stamped flowers too.

I've also made a tag to join in the fun  at Tag Tuesday where the theme is Sunshine.
I've added an old  IndigoBlu sentiment, (which  I thought I'd made a mess of the stamping, but on checking I noticed it's a 'distressed' type! )  I thought this sentiment was quite apt for our British Summer as in my part of the country we're a bit lacking in in the sun department and have had some torrential downpours today.

Thanks for calling in,
Avril xx

Oh yes, lets!! The weather is supposed to be improving this weekend but we too had a terrific thunderstorm today and were watching rain pouring down and blowing in gusts off the rooves opposite! Thank you so much for linking this sunny, optimistic page to AJJ! Your tag too has just the right words and looks wonderful! Hugs, Chirsxx

Your picnic is wonderful, Avril. I love how you colored everything so beautifully. I like that you included the teapot so we would be assured we were going on a picnic. Thanks for sharing this with us using Chris's theme at Art Journal Journey, dear.

I loved your little sunshine tag, too. Your little girl was adorable, and she certainly DID bring her own sunshine!

Both of these are delightful, Avril... there's such a freshness to them and that sense of carefree summer days. I particularly love the tag, and it's a great quote too.

Oh how adorable! We've had so much rain it's beginning to feel tropical or jungle Amazonian, which I suppose is why I have never had a desire to go to the Caribbean even though it's so close to me. xoxo
