Maryland is for CRABS.....

Art Journal
Memories of 4th of July
at the Delaware-MD shore....

It's not my usual red, white & blue that I would normally do today, but there is an essence of those colors here.  I recently acquired the crab napkin.  First I used my Gelli plate (the red-orange colors) and then I glued the crab on top.  I filled in around the edges with the blue and some yellow ochre.  And I stamped a couple of more crabs unto the page.  This page was a quickie, but I like it.
I haven't had those crabs for several years but they are the have to go there and eat them.  The Fenwick Crab House is the place we normally went for the's a messy job to eat them, but that's part of the experience.  And you need a cold pitcher of beer as the crabs have a lot of Chesapeake Bay Seasoning on them and that has a bit of a kick to it.  On your way back to your beach's a stop at the Dairy Queen for a chocolate dip vanilla cone.  It doesn't get any better than that....Happy 4th!
