The Summer of Color: Week Two!


Welcome to Week Two of The Summer of Color 2: Ice Cream Inspirations!

And um, yeah . . .  . What a week it was . . . with 113 links at the time of the draw, a frenzy of activity on our Flickr and Facebook pages and some unexpected play on Pinterest, it looks like we're well on our way to a crazy, fun-filled and decidedly delicious Summer.

And did you see all the amazing work created with Rainbow Sherbet in mind? Everything from journal pages to canvases, ATC's, art boxes, origami, digital art, photography, baby booties, quilted blankets, tea towels, altered florals and, believe it or not, fingernail art was represented. I'm so impressed by all the kindness and creativity here and want to thank you for sharing your time, talents and energy . . .

Now On With Week Two!

Tried to link my blog posting just now- not sure it's working. Anyway, I enjoyed working with the "mint chocolate chip" colors so much!

I loved working with the mint choc. chip, and this week's color is just as fun--I didn't even know there was such a flavor--great combo!
Congratulations Piarom!!

Congratulations on winning, Piarom! What a variety of colors and flavors of ice cream each week! Had never heard of Baseball Nut ice cream until this morning. Now I need to think about what to make this week.

TrishaTrixie said...

Loveing it...though not to clear on what colors "Basebal nut would be. Black Rasberry is til one of those that could be so many things. So I assuming this year you are leaving a lot of things to OUT interpretations of things???

Ana said...

Congratulations Piarom. :)

That is super exciting that quite a lot of us are taking part in this event. I love seeing the entries and visiting the blogs to discover new Artists and make friends.

You rock and I look forward in seeing what everyone comes up with in the second week. Loving the imaginative color prompt, will see what inspires me this time round. xx

Have a blissful week everyone and keep on rocking the ice cream color way. :)
