Fun this summer

After a long day of landscaping…more on that in another post….something fun was in order.

I started with a sheet of page protector paper…random colors and stamps included. Note the date and circle stamping in the upper left. I was thinking fun so sunny, bright colors came to mind. I used my favorite tools to add this much needed color…my fingers! If I’m creating, I’m seldom without paint on my hands.

I used watered down paints on scrapbook paper to give life to this ice cream cone, using foam tape to give the scoop some dimension. I wasn’t sure I even liked this page last night I figured I’d be changing things up this morning.

Nope…after a good nights sleep, I like it! All that was left was to add the sentiment this morning.

  1. Wow, what a fun and cheery summer page! I love the colours you used and heart and flower doodles you added 😀. Your ice cream reminds me of mint chocolate chip flavour – yum! I’m off now to raid the freezer, I’m sure I have ice cream in there somewhere …Lol! 😉 Happy Friday and Weekend! J 😊

  2. I’m so glad you didn’t change a thing on this spread. It’s really lovely, and the ice cream cone screams summertime. I love the beach colors you used and what appears to be an abstract boat on the water. Thanks for sharing it with Art Journal Journey today, Halle.

  3. Nice fresh colored page, real summer feeling with the icecream. Enjoying icecream is a wonderful thing, but I also love it in winter. 😉 Yummy!

  4. Ice cream is always yummy and a fun art of summer. Your color choices kind of looks like the colors of different flavors too. :)Hugs-Erika
