The Summer of Color 2: Ice Cream Inspirations
Before we close this chapter of The Summer of Color, I wanted to share with you what all The Summer Girls look like hanging out together. . . .
I've made some changes along the way; small adjustments that I felt needed to be done once I saw the banner as a whole. For example, I added a bit of tulle to Chocolate Chipy's glittery bow and a new hair accessory to little Miss. Wild n Reckless. I changed the eye color of Miss. Baseball Nut as, to be honest, she was giving my trouble the entire time and I thought that a pop of color might make her (okay, me) happy. I also added depth to some of the initials that seemed a little wimpy when compared to the ones done in the later weeks.
With all that out of the way, it was time to string them together. I used three yards of iridescent white trim and simply glued the canvas flags from behind with E-600 (don't you just love that stuff?). I added a bit of stitching for stability and then finished it off with a blue satin bow and vintage tear-drop crystal to balance out the fabric flower on the other end.
And there you have it: six weeks of Summer all lined up in a row! Wanna see more? Okay:
Thank you for taking the time to look, laugh and play! I've enjoyed "arting" with old friends and new and I look forward to more play dates in the future . . . .
