A Little piece of Art...

Hello friends..  
How are you doing.

I am doing wonderful.. That is because I am still on Vacation
at the Beach.  It is so peaceful and relaxing I am just loving it..
Our biggest decision is should we go for a walk down the beach.
Or just sit here and take it all in!!
I have to say I am one lucky gal!  You know if I could I would
bring you all with me..  Might be a pretty tight squeeze in the trailer.. 


This guy has been hanging out in front of our trailer the whole time.
I am thinking he wants a sip of my margarita.. 
Silly bird..

Well down to business..  It is Tuesday which  
means it time for another challenge over at 

And yep, yours truly is the hostess.
If you been following me you know I have been dabbling a little
with mixed media art.. 
And it has been fun to add a  little doodling to some of my projects.
So that is what I came up with for this weeks challenge.. 
I want to see some hand-doodling on your projects..
Sound like fun right.. 


Ok... I didn't say I was good at doodling.. Hee Hee.. 
But it sure is fun.. 


This is another ATC..  Some times it's hard to tell
how little this is.. 


The house was cut out of different kinds of paper
and all layer on with modge podge.
And the background is book paper with some 
Watercolor paint over it.. Lots of fun to make. 


I got this idea out of a Somerset Studio magazine.
When I saw it I thought is was so cute I just had to give it a try..

To get all the details on this challenge you can hop on over to
CCCB.  You should pop on over and see what all the other Ladies have
come up with..

I still have the rest of this week here at the ocean.. So I might be a little
slow getting around to visiting you..  But I will be by soon!!


Hugs, Linda

So cute on both accounts! I am thinking the silly guy would love to grab a bite of a sandwhich and then wash it down with a Margarita sip! Have fun!

Smashing piece of mixed media Linda. You sound as if you are having a great time and I like your friend Gully as well..........xx

That is doodling at its BEST, absolutely the cutest, you make me want to do one of this too! : )
I so want to squeeze into your trailer!

Well, Linda! I know we can't all fit into your trailer, but you can take us with you with your photo's. I am there everytime! You doodling project sounds fun and relaxing. That is usually the only time I doodle as I always want it to be perfect and doodling is NOT perfect. Your ATC is fun and happy, just like you. Enjoy that ocean, Seagulls are so funny aren't they. I always think, they have already had a drink!! Happy day to you.
