Over at the Mixed Media Place the challenge is One Important Word. I decided to go with Summertime. Now I know this is not the most descriptive word and it does not always evoke a strong feeling, but I am really enjoying this Summer and it just seemed fitting for me to use it.

I made my own stencil using my Cricut. I applied white gesso through the stencil onto my page.

Next I used some Acrylic ink to make circles and drips down the page. Just before the ink was totally dry I took a baby wipe to it and revealed the gessoed Summertime stencil. I then flicked on some black paint to add in some more contrast.

I added in my photos along with stamped and inked images of the sun.

I used the letters cut out form the stencil as my title. I painted the letters with white gesso and then inked the edges up a bit so they popped off the page better.

And that is my One Important Word page spread. I hope you are enjoying your summer and as always thanks so much for taking the time to stop by.
