Coming back from the beach.....




.....I kept working on a series of small summer notebooks.
First I made them in green but the colors of this boat on the beach
inspired me the bright yellow and orange combination.
The bikini and high heeled shoe are my favorite recurrent themes always.
I cut out the patterns so it's a bit time consuming but I like the collage idea.

En revenant de la plage, le week end dernier,
j'ai continué à travailler sur une série de petits carnets d'été.
Au départ, je les ai fait en vert puis les couleurs de cette barque sur la plage
m'ont fait aller vers une combinaison plus vive de jaune et d'orangé.
Le bikini et la sandale à talon sont mes thèmes favoris toujours.
Je découpe moi-même les motifs donc c'est un peu long mais j'aime l'idée du collage.

So cute. It reminds me I need to find the cards I bought from your Etsy shop as I still need to frame them or have them framed and put up for my viewing pleasure :-)

Ah yellow....reminds me of the advent of spring! :-)
You are way too good with those scissors! My friend said one day she found holes in her curtains.
Her daughter has been 'making' patterns and designs out of their curtains! I said...well ...she might become a designer one day! ;-)
