Hi everybody, time for another Paint Party, hosted as always by Eva and Kristin. And it's also week three of Summer of Colour, hosted by Kristin. And there's a new challenge at Piaroms's 'Mix it Monthly', so I have been busy trying to do something for all of these challenges. And I did my alpha page for the challenge at the Craft Barn. This week has not been easy, as I had very painful and shaky hands again, which was not a big help. But I tried my best, things just take much longer.
Conny at Mix it Monthly gave us a 'recipe' this time - seaside, blue, sand, violet, seagulls, wood and a verse to accompany it. I altered a wooden IKEA picture frame, which I painted with acrylics in blue and violet. The sand has been made from torn paper, and the fence from a thin piece of wood, which I cut with a TH fence die. It crumbled a bit, so it's turned into a rickety fence, but I did give it a coat of white paint. The background is painted paper. I added paper bunting, a cut out ship, a fishing net and a few other bits and bobs.
And my verse? 'I do love to be beside the seaside!'

For Summer of Colour I have made a journal page, with which I am not satisfied, but at least it's the right colours - pale pink and charcoal grey. The background was painted with left over colours in the course of the last 2 weeks. I think I will try to do something more with it, but not this week.
And last but not least, my 'B' page for the Alpha Challenge at the Craft Barn. I chose Beloved, and have added a quote from the Song of Solomon 6:3, which I have written in Hebrew and English. I do like the way this one turned out, so that's something! The background was wiped with a little gesso to tone it down, and I left it that way as I decided to keep it black and white.
If you stayed with me to the end, congratulations!
Here's wishing you all a happy weekend, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
