Weekly Wrap up / Summer of Colour

July has begun with celebrating Canada Day - fireworks last night were impressive. There is something about the colour, the noise, the anticipation of each explosion. It was almost as fun watching the stream of people trying to find a good vantage point for watching the fireworks.

I am returning to my weekly wrap- up (alto it is a day late).
I am working on and  beginning a number of challenges for this month:

1. Summer of Colour


Kristin at Twinkle, Twinkle is holding the Summer of Color challenge based on awesome ice cream flavours. How fun is that! This week it is Strawberry Lemonade.



I had fun just playing with paint, creating a background for another project.




2.  Flowers
I am taking photos and then working on sketches, drawings, collages and/or paintings from these photos. I have started a journal for these creations. Yesterday was finishing the flower cover.





Today was a sketch of a wild rose.



3. ATCs
I am working on several sets, but this weekend I was working mostly on backgrounds to use for these cards.


 (I used left over paint from strawberry lemonade)



4. Photography
For July I am taking photos each day, to record our new dove family setting up a home on our porch and of our garden. I am looking for textures as well.


(It's a bit blurred but love the colour and shape of this firework display)
