July is very nearly over and done with and it's not been a bad month in this part of the UK. Weather has been good and I have done all sorts of good things. I am ahead of myself too as I have August already to go. For those of you who don't know this is the Art Calendar challenge set up by the lovely Kate of the Kathryn Wheel, so just nip over there and have a look at all the gorgeous calendar pages. August represents for me Sea and Sand hence the colours I have chosen and those gorgeous Stampotique mermaids and octopus.
