WS: Blue


I've been sitting here unproductive for a couple of days. It is really hot here. There are conflicting reports. My blog temperature (waaayyy down at the bottom of the blog here) is pretty accurate. It pushed 100 today. Rolling blackouts too, so we've got the AC on 80 degrees..

I've also been staring at the same backgrounds and "elements" for the past two days without progress. So I have been relaxing with the family and trying to stay cool with a popsicle here and there.

This arch is for Wednesday Stampers "blue" challenge. Acrylic paint background, justjohanna circle dot background and some other images...artist crayons, machine stitching, blue vellum, and Pitt (dries nice on vellum!)

The beach was nice yesterday...Mr. Luggage's employeer had a nice party for the families. It was still hot though...in the low 80's at the beach.

Thanks for coming by...I have some ideas swimming in my head for IF.......wish I was swimming..

great bit of stitching part way around and love the words....as I sit here stagnating in the heat. I'm off to get a popsicle...thanks for that idea. Great arch!

The heat is zapping my creativity too. I like your arch. The quote seems so appropriate to my lack of artistic week. Okay, I'm going to finish my Coldstone now.
