Week Three: Baseball Nut!

"M"
8 x 8 Canvas Flag

It's week three of The Summer of Color 2: Ice Cream Inspirations and our third prompt is to create something inspired by the colors found within the "Flavor," Baseball Nut. . . .

"Baseball Nut" is a new one to most of us - including me - and although I'm unfamiliar with the taste (can you believe I actually gave the ice cream cones away after photographing them - what was I thinking - I should have at least sampled them all first ;) I loved playing with the neutral colors of vanilla and cashew along with that bold pop of raspberry.

Once again, I used canvas material as my base and a mix of Caran D'ache watercolor crayons, acrylics and metallic and gel pens as accents. As a matter of fact, I used the same glittery gel pen here (Sakura Gelly Roll; a new favorite of mine) that I'm offering in this week's giveaway above.

Ready for more? Me too. Oooooh, look! The next color is so pretty . . . .

Ice Cream Kisses,
Kristin xo

I am so enjoying each new pennant of yours, Kristin! I look so forward to them, that I have been thinking about it all on Sunday nights as I am falling asleep, then waking up on Mondays dying to take a peek! I am surprised that I'm not eating ice cream for breakfast. And, you do need to sample all of these, especially the cashew one! Have a great week ans enjoy your summer sun with your little one...hugs, kath

I love your ice cream ladies, they all have their own something special but still go together well.I love the colors in this one and think they came out perfect for the prompt. Very cool.

Wow, your flags are just truly amazing week by week. I love your characters, they are simply adorable and you do the color theme well. I think this one is my favorite so far. I look forward in seeing your flags someday in an online shop for others to discover your beautiful work. Would love to buy this pretty one. xx
