"Pink isn't just a color, it's an attitude!"
- Miley Cyrus
Welcome to Week Four of The Summer of Color 4: Smudge, Splash & Pop! I absolutely loved lurking around your blogs and our Facebook page and reading your thoughts about last week's Lavender & Grey palette. Although it provoked strong reactions (of the love-it-or-leave-it variety) you happily took on the challenge and gave it your all. As a result, I found that there was a lot of experimentation last week, with a variety of new techniques being tried on and tested out. And the outcome? Nothing less than spectacular. You impress me, you do! Thank you for sharing your beautiful work and spirit with us all. . . .
We'll be working on our fourth - of six - color palettes. Your prompt will include two main colors along with a Smudge, Splash or Pop of a third. As always, feel free to create anything your little heart desires, as long as it's based upon the colors of the week. And remember, you're welcome to join in at any time. If you've just found us, welcome. I promise you're gonna like it here.
And That Social Media Thing Again?
Oh yes. Please make sure to link your work to the widget below in order to be in the running for the weekly giveaway. The winner is selected from this list so in order to be considered, we must first link here. Other than that, we have a lotta fun in our Facebook group and we can see a lotta art in one place over in our Flickr pool. We even have a hashtag for the SOC4 so that we can all find each other out there. Please use #TheSummerOfColorFour for all of your social media.

I have a feeling you're gonna love this one. It's fun, bright, and perfect for Summer. Ready?
