This is the first page of my journal for this summer's challenge.
This week on summer of color ice cream inspirations the color was rainbow sherbet- including bold oranges, pinks, yellows, and a hint of white. I came up with three different projects for this color.
The first one was in combination with a Lifebook lesson where we made blob art animals. I used the sherbet colors to make my blobs. This was a fun way to come up with some fun funky animals.
On the back I glued some scrap book paper just to make it look nice. It folds into a little accordion book.
The second project that I did was an abstract painting. I painted this in a new watercolor Moleskine journal.
The last project that I made was a small quilt. I hand dye cotton fabric in the summer so I have a stash of colors already and I added some extra pinks for this week. These are the fabrics that I used for this small quilt.
This quilt is 7 1/2" by 7 1/2" finished.
Here is a close up of one of the circles. My stitching isn't the neatest, but this was a good way for me to get back to quilting for the summer. I have been spending most of my time painting this last year, but I want to keep on making art quilts too.
Now I'm gathering ideas for the next challenge which is mint chocolate chip. There is still plenty of time to join this fun challenge so check it out at Summer of Color.
Have a great week,
