On the grill


Erika, who many of you know as Bio Art Gal is this month's host at  Art Journal Journey.  Her theme is When It's Hot.

Can you feel it?

Can you feel the heat

from the grill?


I began this page by starting with two colors of green staz-on reinkers and 91% isopropyl alcohol I brushed onto the 110 lb card stock. 

To that I sewed an old calendar page and the computer generated words "Feel the heat from the grill" using variegated thread.

Bleubeard and I are simply thrilled you joined us today, and we also hope to see you at Art Journal Journey

Good morning Elizabeth! Well, it's earl morning here! Your lovely journal page has made me very hungry, but I'll have to make do with my cappuccino today! Have a nice day, look after yourself! Valerie

Grey, grey, grey. Cold.
At least your sweets do not wake my tooth. You know, the only sweet one I have. "He" hybernates in this icky weather.
A-haaND! IF... "IF" warm here we get fruit from the fridge, not the grill.
Wish I could feel the heat. I´d take the strawberry :-) the rest, you and Bleubeard enjoy :-)

What a cool picture - love the kabobs! GREAT sewing too. I really like this - makes me want to go grill something (or just do dessert kabobs). Awesome creation!!!! Hugz

Your page just screams Summer. I love the idea of dessert kabobs. I hope the pineapple chunks were grilled. Take care and enjoy your day!

That looks so good! I hear thunder in the distance. I hope we can still grill out tonight!

Thanks for your wonderful comment -- you are very right about so much. Not about the part that Rick and I can touch. We have to keep distance. He's sometimes out there and even though he's careful it's still risky business. SO, we try to stay six feet except in the kitchen and maybe opposite ends of the couch and once or twice I hugged him from behind. Until that (this week) the only living thing I touched in four months was Lizzie. So I can relate to what you said about the cats. But the plus -- it's very good company and we've had some wonderful, deep talks in this time, which is really a gift.

That looks so delicious! I’m not sure how much these kebabs have been on the grill (they look like fruit and brownies!) but I’ll have some to go. Love the colours and your page. Pink Bird isn’t too worried about the goldfinch since the goldfinch is outside. It’s been over a week and he’s still coming to our windows every day. Take care.

A tasty looking page! Love it! xx

Once again you have incorporated sewing into your journal page and once again I am determined to do the same sometime soon. I love how you do this.
Great idea to have a barbecue and I can just imagine those kebabs tasting delicious, in fact you have made me rather hungry for something sweet.
Hugs, Neet xx

Yum - love a grilled skewer, whatever it has on it (pretty much... no bell peppers for me though, thanks!) and there's plenty of heat on this grill. Love the stitched edging - it's a really great touch of extra texture to finish the page off.

This looks like my kind of kebab - I'm not so keen on the meaty kind! I love how you added the sewing ( as I always do) Hugs, Chrisx
