Minty Happiness!



This is week two in Summer of Color2, Mint Chip Ice Cream Color Inspired! I LOVE me some Mint Chip, so happy me finally got to sit down, for a few, rummage through some fabulous tidbits, mostly fun goodies that varies artists had sent to me, and get sticky with glue!  I did have on had some yummy minty paint, yay, and like usual, I worked on a strong piece of cardboard and added in a dryer sheet for texture.


also linking up to Paint Party Friday!

Happy Week.  Sure hope I can fit in a little more art time this week!

  3. I share your diet coke addiction and ohhh I've got it bad...morning, noon and night! Let me know if you overcome. I was able to quit for 6 months but didn't like the weight I gained trying to satisfy my sweet tooth without the DC, so I'm back. Your collage is lovely. I homeschool my 13 yr old Son, so far he has no interest in attending traditional school and I'm okay with that for as long as he is. Happy PPF!

  14. Lovely piece! I'm seeing a lot of green today - I guess it's a summer thing. (One other was also Summer of Color, but the other three weren't!)

  32. Did you say you used cardboard and a dryer sheet? Wow! I am big on recycling, watching our water use, buying local food, organic food, etc. but have not carried that through to my art and I should take a lesson from you. Your piece is amazing! Did you stamp the bird and butterfly or sketch it? It looks like they are on pattern paper, is that so? I love it!
