Ice Cream Inspiration...



When I think of Summer I think of 
Ice Cream, Watermelon, Grilling Hot dogs, Sipping on
some sweet ice tea and floating around in the pool. 

Summer also reminds me of Kristin's 
Ice Cream Inspiration Challenge. 
And this is the first week of Summer of Colors.

 I played along last summer and couldn't wait to play along this summer. 
So here is inspiration photo to get your creative juices flowing.

Rainbow Sherbet


It's a six weeks long party going on over at
Kristin's blog..  Even you photographers can join in.
Just show a photo with these yummy colors. 





So I decided to do a page in my Art Journal.
A little mixed media page with all the yummy colors.  





But I only got so far on my page and I got
stuck.. Does that ever happen to you?
It needs something but I don't know what.. 
Some words maybe?


Well here it is..  I don't really feel like I 
am done yet.. So I am going to put it down for now
and come back to it later..  We shall see..

To see all the other wonderful Artist you
can hop over to





I am so happy you stopped by!

Hugs~

Audrey Pettit said...

Love it! Wow! Such beautiful colors and I just adore the mixed media feel. So wish I had talents along these lines! :)

Susan said...

I am a huge sucker for ice cream. I try to limit it to 2 cones a week in summer and a bit less in the winter months.
The colors in your piece are really appealing. I'm not a painter or draw-er, but when I do photo collages I have that sense when I'm done...and when I'm not.
Happy weekend to you.

I like what you have done. And I love that you are brave enough to post when you don't think you are finished. It's inspiring to me to see and show WIP - finding someone to create that way isn't easy.. Bravo!
