Chalk Art Festival

Every year our local Allied Arts holds the Bellingham Arts Festival and Chalk Art. Jason and I went down and wandered the streets watching the chalk artists create their incredible art. Here are a few of our favorites...

Summer "Chunky"

There was a summer themed chunky-a-thon on this weekend, so of course I had to play. Slowly. I don't know why it takes me so long to finish a page. I had a good idea of what I wanted to do, and they weren't complicated layers. It just took a while to find the images and pieces that worked. Of course I did work two of the three days, and had some computer issues to deal with, so I guess I should give myself a break. :)
Here's one of my two finished pages.

Stamped script on 165# cream card stock, layered with paper napkin, images, postage stamp, enhanced with inks, beeswax. Added fibers and a charm for fun.

Mid-summer garden

 With the nice warm weather we're having, we will have ripe zucchini by tomorrow... yippee! 

Companion plants to help attract beneficial insects and not-so beneficial ones to them rather than my squash plants.

I love gardening...

Bee Balm

The bee balm (monarda) is in full bloom... and the hummingbirds love it. We still have Rufus coming to visit, and the Anna's are here too. I love this time of year. Now if the weather will just keep co-operating...

Recent Art

I'm working on a book for myself. Finally. Theme is birds, nature, inspiration. This is the first one completed a week or so ago. Text background, over stamped flourishes in light brown, ink tinted edges, paper napkins and beeswax.

I think this one needs something else... I just haven't decided what. Vintage sheet music background, layered paper napkins, images and words printed on tissue, ink tinted edges, "melded" with beeswax. I love how the tissue disappears...

Part of the activities of our art weekend in Hood River this past weekend was visiting the Lavender Festival... It was a beautiful day, inspiring and lovely views. I came home with an armful of lavender to dry and some green lavender tea.
