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

Great colors once again. Thanks Kristin for all the work that you do for this blog party.
Hello Kristin, I have loved these colors, so fun and pretty!! I am not much of a green girl which is weird because I love nature and seeing green everywhere. So this was new for me and I liked it. Thanks again so much for hosting us each week for this. I'm linked up this week, YAY!! Can't wait to see the new colors, time is flying isn't it.
just linked my sewing project using these colours...a pincushion that is attached to my sewing machine
Thank You Kristin once again for the....fun pretty colors.
Really lovely colors this week. I love the combination of greens and pink, especially at this time of year.
Not last minute—I can't believe it. I finished this yesterday, blogged it this morning, then almost forgot the Mr. Linky link! (Way to go, Triche.) Great colors this week. Looking at that green was like a plunge into a deep pool of relaxation.
Almost forgot to post :(
Just noticed your pink and green challenge...no wonder I had been seeing so much pink and green art around:)! By coincidence, I did pink and green this week. I look forward to joining more of your challenges.
This was a LOT of fun! Thank you!
I made it! Love these colors - just had no time. Thanks for hosting Kristin
Lovely colors for this week

Just kidding - I know it's random, but I love the idea of new paints! whew - almost didn't make it in this week but I am here and a bit pleased with the result, even! Everyone posted such GREAT work this week, I've been just blown away with it all! thanks again, Kristin, for the bit of a kick in the keester to make more art!

Was short of time this week so rushed to get something done so I am up to date
Last minute! I've include a photo of me in 1966 in a dress I made in these colors! I loved that dress, and some people thought it was a weird color combo, but not me!
Last minute, me too! I made this Thursday night but was not home to take photos & post it before. So glad I made it - again!
Busy week...just squeezed in. Hope you had a Happy 4th of July!
