"Sunset is still my favorite color, and rainbow is second."

Welllllll now, I don't know about you, but I think we've got something pretty special here with The Summer of Color 4: Smudge, Splash & Pop!
Isn't it ever so much fun? The creativity and connection you've fostered in our first week alone is nothing less than spectacular. Thank you for your kindness, genuine support of one another and for sharing your colorful work with us here, on our Facebook page (which, as I'm sure you've already noticed, is where a lot of the real action takes place) and in our Flickr pool. Your work is beautiful, incredibly varied and an inspiration to see. As far as I'm concerned, we're off to a colorful summer indeed!
We'll be working with our second - of six - color palettes. Your prompt will include two main colors 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 if you've just found us, please do jump in. Each week stands on it's own so feel free to come and go as your schedule permits.
