let's go surf

We are getting 38º! It's boiling hot and I hate it!
So, here I am, at home, waiting for the evening to be a bit lighter.
While at home, I keep on thinking about things that make me feel fresher: beach, breeze, water, waves, salt sea...
And here is the picture in my mind for all these thoughts:
let's go surf
Have a wonderful day!

As I said, I started the mini class with Jackie Rueda. Yes, even better than what I had imagined!
So this is Day 1: a warm up to the adventure:

flowers and sunlight

The strong light of the sun is not good for portraits, however it makes a wonderful light for dreamy flower scenes. I am addicted to this kind of light. I love the effect.
sweet summer dream

TGIF: just flowers

Sunday morning: lavender and bokeh.

more on bamboo: bookmark. marcalibros.

I love Bamboo!
Last week I cut some from the fast growing bamboo plant I have in my terrace and dried it flat inside a book. Then took it to a printing center to have it laminated on a piece of paper. I used Google translator to have "I hug trees" in Chinese. This is the result, I hope it corresponds!
I love the resulting bookmark, and I think I am going to make some more to give my friends.

Tengo un enorme bambú en la terraza. De cuando en cuando corto tallos y los pongo a secar entre periódicos dentro de un libro. Luego escribo alguna cita en un papel en blanco. En este caso he usado el traductor de Google para traducir "abrazo árboles" al chino. Me gusta el efecto de las letras chinas junto con el bambú.
Por último, lo he llevado a plastificar. Y aquí tengo mi marcalibros. Me gusta regalar este tipo de cosas a mis amigos.
