Summer of Colo(u)r ~ or not!

So, here it is the first week of July and it is still raining and today I'm so cold I've put the central heating back on.  And I already had a vest, a warm jumper and a cardigan on!

Despite the cold, I blog hopped around all the UKS Sponsor blogs this morning and saw an amazing array of techniques and projects.

And having thought I was behind with last week's Summer of Color (although I wasn't!) I have spent some time today (in between watching Murray win his tennis match and watching stage 3 of the Tour de France) working on the next colour of ice cream.  Or maybe I watched the television in between parts of the page drying ~ that sounds better!

The next ice cream for Summer of Color is Wild 'N' Reckless.

I'm not at all sure I would actually want to try eating this.  The colours are fabulous for art but would I really want to eat them?

A visit to The Artistic Stamper's blog gave me the idea for the start of my page
 
 
 
 and a subsequent hop to Dyan's blog 
 

 


inspired me to complete this page
 
 

 using old colours of Dylusions ink sprays and Dylusions stamps.


Thanks for stopping by
