Summer is here and its BBQ time once more, my hubby is a top chef when it comes to BBQ. At our house we BBQ American style with a smoker, adding wood chips to the charcoal to create a wonderful flavour. What’s better on a hot summer’s day then to spend time in the garden having a BBQ and a (home brewed) beer.
The background is diluted Distress ink, smooshed onto the page using an acrylic block. Next I added yellow and red acrylic paint splatters and left them to dry overnight, they turned out rich and glossy, just like I had spilt mustard and ketchup onto the page. The images are such fun and came from Hunkydory, I bought them last year and have been waiting for BBQ season to begin so I could use them. The menu is a greaseproof paper sheet that you can buy in a home store to serve your BBQ items on. I stuck them to the page using UHU Stic and outlined them with a black marker. To finish I added a pint of beer, this image was taken from a magazine, and the sentiment.
The title for this page was inspired by a sign we have in our kitchen.
BBQ at our house is a splendid affair, my hubby loves BBQ and cooks mouth-watering and delicious food, and his specialties are Apple Wood Smoked Ribs, Pulled Pork and Beer Butt Chicken – yummy yum yum! All served with home brewed beer of course – although occasionally we have happy accidents and the beer doesn’t go quite to plan.
This beer is what you call ‘Lively’ but once it settled down, tasted delicious as usual!
