Summer Time

Lots of folk will be enjoying some  'summer sun', on their holidays.
I wanted this to be a happy journal page. 
Mustard Seed distress ink and blue acrylic paint for the background 
and my usual turn to addition of  random stamping. 
'The bathing belle's photo comes from the Found Relatives set [Tim Holtz]. 
I had a few snippets of stencils on the table and added those with the die cut clock.

Another page for Art Journal Journey

Thank you for taking time to visit me, I always appreciate the comments you leave.
