I came across a very interesting, six-week-long-challenge called The Summer Of Color 2012 while reading Sandi's blog post recently. The blog's author of Twinkle Twinkle, Kristin chooses six different ice-cream flavors/colors as the themes to go by each week for the next six weeks. Already SO delicious!. The ice cream flavor for this week is 'Rainbow Sherbet'. Look at those colors!!. So Yummy, I can't help it but I just have to create something with bold oranges, pinks, yellow and a touch of white.
The Inspiration: 'Rainbow Sherbet;
The finished project: My new art journal
I even 'iced' it up with some texture paste tinted in orange!
The timing could'nt be more perfect, as I just filled up my first art journal. I need a second art journal and this challenge has inspired me to create one with vivid delicious colors!
I LOVE that there are gazzilion projects you could create to link up to this challenge. Read more about this here. I hope to try make six projects; art journal, art jewelry, altered book, ATC, inchies and canvas art (by no means in chronological order).
I made my journal kind of looking like Donna Downey's 'Inspirational Journal' because of it is simple & practical. This journal is made of fabric covers, 10 blank pages, paper (library cards) & envelope inclusions, cotton & leather strings and a very large button. This time I'm using thick acrylic papers (350 sgm) and so not to ruin it like the last time :)).
I can't wait to splash paint on the pages already. And don't forget to hop over to LESSology's Bookend Challenge. Just include one old/recycled item in your creations!. See you soon.
