School is out. The Bar Mitzvah Boy did us proud at the award ceremony. The house plants moved to deck and porch are bursting with new growth. And that big shining orb in the sky is kissing us with promises of light clothing and dips in the water.
What better way to celebrate the delights of summer than using my increasing stash of resist papers? In my frenzy to find more paper I tore apart a Trader Joe's grocery circular and used that. The newsprint absorbs paint like a sponge making for an interesting effect. I also cut up my Land's End kids catalog since The Bar Mitzvah Boy is nearing six feet. (Wasn't I still ordering from this catalog last year? Sheesh!) And while I'm at it, no use resisting (ahem!) that new circle punch I got with my JoAnn's coupon. Add some of the waxed paper I use to protect the counter when I paint, and voila! A sunshine celebration. Hope you're having one, too.
Happy Summer Solstice!

And while I'm thinking of it, check out the following post in tribute to Fathers Day. Love these resist papers!
