Summer’s Almost Here – Time to Get New Flip Flops for Walks on the Beach!

Maybe it’s time to go to Randall’s Sandals in Pacific Beach to pick up a new pair of flip flops for your summer walks on the beach! And if you don’t yet have my book “A Guide To San Diego Sea Shells”, you can purchase one at Randall’s Sandals and take it with you to the beach!

DEER IN SUMMER & AUTUMN GREETING CARDS – These Asian screen greeting cards are created in lots of steps.  First, paint a watercolor background for your subject, then add rubber stamp images.  Add more watercolors and maybe some highlights of iridescent  watercolors to give the tiny painting depth.  Cut the painting into 3 pieces and secure to your Asian screen card, which you have made previously.  You can write a message on the back of the screen card.  People will ooh and ah when they receive this card.  It will be our secret that it took quite a few hours just to create one Asian screen card!  

I have taken liberty with a quote from Kahlil Gibran.  “Art is love made visible.”
