A perfect view on a perfect day

Today we're taking a trip to the beach 

where we find a perfect view on a perfect day at Art Journal Journey.  And because I used a tag on my page, it qualifies for Try it on Tuesday, where their theme this fortnight is tags.  I'm getting in just under the wire on this one.

It's too bad my tape transfer wasn't as perfect as the day I envisioned when I created this page.

Although tape transfers are hard to photograph, I obviously didn't get enough glue on this one.

I added the dimensional sand castle to add a bit of embellishment.

I liked it much better when I scanned it, although I usually prefer my photos better.  Materials used include white card stock I covered with two colors of green paint.  I attached a tag to the page, then wrote the sentiment.  I messed up the words, so three tries later, I glued the sentiment over the failed sentiment I originally wrote on the tag.  I added the transfer which took forever to remove the paper backing.   Finally, I added the dimensional sand castle to the page and called it finished.

Bleubeard and I appreciate you stopping by today as we host Art Journal Journey during July.  The theme, as I'm sure you know, is summertime love.

You'll also find Bleubeard and me at Try it on Tuesday, where their theme this fortnight is tags.  I hope to see you both places.

I'm not sure our beaches looked as good as this, but the traffic yesterday sure indicated folks were driving to find out. xox

Now that's interesting -- the scan and photo difference. Usually I photograph since hooking and unhooking the scanner isn't the easiest given its placement. I might have to experiment!

Thanks for the very nice comments. I'm slow this summer on seeing and responding to things!
