Summer of Color 2012 Rainbow Sherbet

 This is the first week of Summer of Color 2012 and this first weeks colors are found in  Rainbow Sherbet!  The pinks, oranges and yellows of the sweet/tart frozen treat.
yummy Rainbow Sherbet.

I decided to do a journal page for my 9"x12" journal using those colors and a technique I learned from Dyan Reaveley using Dylusions spray colors and stamps.

What makes this such a big deal for me is that last year this time I didn't do anything on my own it was all by pattern!  I have been learning new techniques and experimenting more with my painting and sketching and I think I am getting better.  I am taking Lifebook 2012 with Tamara Laporte and Willowing & Friends Community and have been having a lot of fun learning to be more creative and to let the creativity flow.

Hope you like my journal page.  Next weeks colors come from chocolate mint ice cream.  Yummo!
