The Marriage of Glue-it Tuesday and Summer of Color...

Hi everyone!  I haven't done "Glue-it Tuesday" in a few weeks, so I thought I would get busy and have some fun with my glue stick!  This week, I decided to marry it with the pink and orange color scheme for this week's Summer of Color challenge, so here's what I came up with...

I already had an orange painted background in my journal, so I just grabbed some pink and orange images from my image box and glued them down grid style.  Super easy!

Oh, and p.s. HAPPY SUMMER SOLSTICE!  It's a great midpoint day to take a look at your word for the year and see how you think it's going?  I'm going to do that tonight on a journal page.  My word is "balance," and I have to say my feelings about what that word means to me have changed a bit since I picked it in December.   How about you?  What's your word for the year?  How's it going?  Do you need to change your word? 

I'm linking up with Summer of Color and Glue-it Tuesday; and also Art Journal Every Day.

Thanks so much for visiting!  I will see you again soon!

Great idea about checking in with our word right now. Can't believe half a year has gone by already. Looking forward to seeing your journal page about your word. Hope you feel good about it.

I have been thinking about my word a lot lately... it has proven to be more and bolder and much more needed than I could ever have imagined... I might do a page about it sometime...
