September sets preview and holiday creativity.

As most of you know by now we are enjoying some time in the USA as we travelled over for a wedding.  Last night and tonight we are staying at a place called Casa Rubio which is located just into California if you are coming from Oregon at a place called Smith River.  It is right on the beach and this morning before the fog descended we had some lovely views of the ocean.  Instead of a guest book people leave notes on pieces of driftwood and pebbles.  As I have my new Marks Finest Papers sets with me I decided to try my hand at some real mixed media and rather freehand stamping.  I had so much ink on my fingers and knees sitting out on the deck trying to create these (sorry about the photo clarity - haven't found out how to do closeups with this camera!).  I don't have my current MFP watermark with me so I used an old one on one of the pictures.
The ink soaks into the stone so I need to do more with this before we leave in the morning.

Just so you can share the beauty of this place - here is the view through their garden down to the beach. The hummingbirds just love all their fuschias.

Thanks for looking and hope you are having a great week.


  1. Wow!!! You created amazing NATURE projects! Gorgeous view! What a great idea to stamp on a rock. My husband loves to collect rocks. I will have to give it a try! The santa looks great on the wood! Gorgeous scene you created on the drift wood and I love the "Harmony" piece! Wishing you safe travels home!

  2. Wow, way to leave your "Mark's"!!


I love to hear your thoughts - please come back soon.
