We could see the golf course from our balcony also. This was the 11th hole. Players would tee off across the water to the left.
Mission San Luis Obispo with flowers and shadows.
Avila Barn- a wonderful place to buy local produce and lots of products from CA.
I liked the light coming through the Avila Pier's posts.
We saw several surfers; some waves were pretty high!
Here are a few images from our vacation.
There was a group of birds sitting on this log who looked as if they were deliberately posing for photos.
The San Luis Bay Inn where we stayed.
Interesting textures in this seaweed shot.
A close-up of a pelican.
The beach and cliff was the view from our balcony. We enjoyed this vacation so much we are returning next September!

Here are the three abstract fabric postcards I am mailing to members of TheLatestTrendsinMixedMediaArt group. Fun and fast to make! I used peltex for the stiffener, batik and hand-dyed fabrics, a hand-carved stamp image and some pigma pen embellishments. I used a patterned muslin for the back so that I could write the mailing info right onto the fabric. One of these has to make it all the way to a little island in the UK. Hope it makes it!!

These ATCs were made for a swap with Arttechniquesatcs. We were to use aged paper, fall colors and a brass charm on each card. I have been enjoying painting tissue papers and layering them for backgrounds. So, that is what the backgrounds are. The brown texture comes from added coffee grounds to the paint. The leaves are either a crayon batik or a faux rust technique.

This is a handpainted paper collage I have been working on to submit to the Harvest Fair. The colors are a bit brighter in person. There are metallic paints, antique text, antique maps, glitter, gold mica flakes, coffee grounds incorporated into the painted papers. It is 15 x 20 unframed. The framing is next!

For some reason this is where the typing wants to start. These are samples from one tray of shaving cream and dye re-inkers. I used Nick Bantock colors. I was able to get 12 sheets done with one application of shaving cream. I just re-swirled the colors each time. I used Bristol Board paper. My hubby printed a sheet, and my son helped put in the color. I guess it was a macho enough project for them since it used shaving cream. These papers will be used to make ATCs for the Arttechniquatcs group.

I am working on ATCs for the arttechniquesatc group, and finished my monoprints for the arttechniques main group. I am looking forward to seeing what the others have done!
Continuing working on projects for The Artists Circle; can't wait until I can tell you all about this group and project!
The July Challenge for the ZNE Design Team will also need to be done in the next week or so. Off to play!
Here are my first three Metal Tape Technique ATCs. These are for the arttechniquesatc group. This technique uses hardware store metal tape that you can emboss and then highlight with black acrylic paint, or you can color it with alcohol inks (landscape ATC in center). I used some Twisted paper images from a downloadable collage sheet. The tape is fun to play around with!
