SUMMER OF COLOUR #2 - ICE CREAM INSPIRATIONS WEEK 1

Our inspiration for Week #1 is Rainbow Sherbet!  


My first plan (meaning this could change at any given time!) is to integrate catching up on any number of on-line classes I have enrolled in and not completed (how many of us are there?) with Kristin's SUMMER OF COLOUR #2.   One of those classes is LETTER LOVE 101 with Joanne Sharpe..a wonderful series of classes and indeed I have signed up for her new offering COLOUR LOVE 101.  I may never transform my lettering into an art form...a truth I accept but I am concentrating on at least making it readable and surrounded by something artful!

  18. Um, yes. Guiltttttty! One of my resolutions this year was to not sign up to any more classes till I finish the ones I've paid for. Am finding it so hard to resist though!

    Love that quote, you've done it proud :)

  19. one of my favorite quotes!! and i also love your tagline about never skimping on the magic!

    i, too, am playing catch up with all the classes i've registered for and not gotten through. i've been feeling so guilty about not taking the time needed for them that i've put off registering for the color love class until i catch up. i'm not sure i'm going to be able to stick with that, though. it keeps calling my name! :-)

    can't wait to see more of your work!

    (ooh, and look at how my mouse creates little stardust on your page! you are multi-talented for sure!)
