This past weekend, my hubby and I did a bit of wandering ourselves in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Originally, we planned to make it a day trip so we could visit the Adams County Irish Festival. After some thought, we changed our minds and made it an overnight trip without the children. Our youngest is a bit over a year and it was our first time leaving her. She did fabulously, thanks to such wonderful grandparents!
It was a very humid and hot weekend but we had fun browsing downtown Gettysburg, some outlets, the battlefield and the Irish Festival. We ate amazing food, listened to tons of Irish Music and enjoyed each others company. Don’t you just love summer?
The title of my journal page reminds me of the care-free activities and trips that we are free to enjoy during summertime.
Creating the Journal Layout
I made this layout for my new art journal. I am working on a name but it will have a steampunk theme. I specifically made it for the Lindy’s July Color Challenge. I used several Lindy’s colors (Sea Mint Green, Long John’s Silver, Golden Sleigh Bells). The background texture was made using my recent favorite stencil by Stencil Girl.
The stamps I used are from the new Seth Apter release over at PaperArtsy. I have been using them a lot lately and I am loving the versatility of these stamps. I used several stamp sets from 7 Gypsies as well.Related Posts: The Book Of Memories and Seth Apter’s New Stamp Release
