Week 2 - Summer of Colour




Kristin of "Twinkle, Twinkle" is once again holding her "Summer of Colour". This year,  though,  the inspirations are from delicious ice cream flavours!

Welcome to Week Two of The Summer of Color 2: Ice Cream Inspirations!
This week the inspiration is from mint chocolate chip! How delicious is that!



I just finished report cards last night (|YEAH!!!), so I am now free to indulge in all kinds of challenges. Kristin's colour challenge is a must! I thoroughly enjoyed it last year.

I created 2 backgrounds tonight - one for week 1 and 2.

Week 2:

 I used 2 colours of acrylic paint with white , with the idea of ground and sky/grass.

Then I added a photo of a rose from our garden, some stamps and one of my favourite quotes:




Week 1 was Rainbow Sherbet!


I'm still not sure what I will do with this background yet.

Be sure to check out the different versions for Week 2 here.
