Summer in the PNW


Summer in the PNW

The cool place to be near me is the beach. My husband took this pic during our last visit on one of those perfect Northwest days. While the rest of the country had a heat wave this summer, it is has been cloudy most of the summer where I live in Washington. We drove to Oregon to escape our own weather. :) Thanks for looking.

Here are the materials I used.

The journaling:
In the Pacific Northwest the beach is frequently much cooler than it is inland. Often the morning fog lingers on well into the afternoon. So when the temperatures rise in town, the place to be is the beach. Nothing beats a cloudless day on the Oregon Coast with a cool breeze, the calming lull of the waves, and to top it off a pastel sunset.



    Stunning! Love photos of the Oregon coast, we seldom get over there and I wish we did. Love the multi frames. And the blending...absolutely gorgeous!
    Gorgeous photo and page! I like the subtle shells around the edges and the pretty cluster at the bottom left.
    Oooo- this is such a beautiful page and the masking?/blending? is exquisite!
    This is so beautiful! I love the blended photo and your cluster is fabulous!
    A lovely page - what a great photo your husband took, and how well you have embellished it with your LO. The coast looks absolutely beautiful.
    Blending works so beautifully for this gorgeous photo. Love the balance in the placement of title, cluster and journaling. Great job on this layout!

    Gorgeous photo and beautifully blended. I love the cluster and the the font is great for journaling. Lovely page.
    A gorgeous page. The blending is wonderful and I love the palimpsest look of the paper with its shells and sand dollors pressed into it. I especially like your journalling, it really looks like it's and integral part of the photo. This goes into my favourites to remind me how journalling looks when it's done well!
    I'd have to agree 100%! Gorgeous page - I love a visit to the coast.
