SOC 4 week 6

  I seem to be having troubles with my blog posts that I have scheduled.  This one got lost somewhere so I am having to rewrite it... Thanks Kristin for letting me know!


My Summer of Color 4 week 6 project was a lot of fun to do.  Kristin gave us the color challenge this week of Raspberry, Tangerine, and pop of yellow.  Go check out Twinkle Twinkle Like a Star for deets.

Hmmm...says I once again not some of my favorite colors and all that kept going through my brain was Raspberry beret and raspberry lemonade...so I painted raspberry lemonade whilst the music of Prince's Raspberry Beret played in my brain...(took me days to get it out and I think I just let it back in...)
Raspberry Lemonade
Not a super good picture but it is the best I can do right now!  It is a little more orangey then I wanted but I am really happy at how well it has turned out.  I love the way the textured leaves pop out at you and I pop dotted a lemon drawing on the top of the picture to give it some more depth!  Unfortunately you can't see the shimmery effect the Silks from Luminarte gives the picture! 

I have had so much fun with the weekly challenges that I think I am going to have to find some challenge blog to keep stimulating me like this has.  Any good ideas?

  1. Oh, I really, really like this Vickie! Your right those leaves are super great and I like the idea of the lemon on pop dots too.

    SOC was a fun challenge, but short. I'd like to find an other too.
