Summer of Color~ Wild 'N Reckless Sherbet

My entry for this week's Summer of Color challenge and in Kat's book for our Inspiration Avenue Round Robin......  Inspired by Wild 'N Reckless Sherbet; an ice cream so full of fabulous colors of neon pinks, purples, blues and greens
 (it looks like it might be almost toxic to eat but SO much fun to admire the vibrant colors anyway)! 
So ya'll saw the background on Friday with the mandala and here it is all put together!

 with the left page turned to make for easier reading- yes, I almost missed the word "all" but was forced to creative measures because I'd already glued the page in...... 

 and the mandala with the strips of ribbon in place......the leaves and lime-y ribbon match better in real life

I'll be in and out this week, have a massive painting project going on- everyone in our house is doing a room swap- he oldest is leaving soon for college, and all the bedrooms are changing because of it....in the meantime, go see what everyone else did to be "wild and reckless" over at Summer of Color!

Your Wild and reckless art is great! And I like the way you added "all"... Good to remember, as I leave out my little words when I am writing and thinking at the same time, ha! Beautiful...

painting rooms sounds easier than the renovation that we are in the middle of planning... I am thinking I may need to move over with you until it is all done... how much fun would that be... we could play all the time... and make great paintings like this one...xx

You paint the best pages, Stephanie, every time I see one in real life, I am re-amazed at your work. Luckily for me I scrolled down to see what I was missing here...when I saw the painting that you started last year I was so happy to see her again! That was one of my favorite-est and now she is even more beautiful! She doesn't look like a 'baseball nut' to me though, LOL.
♥♥♥Love to you

Terri Neggers said...

Wow, your mandala is striking - the colors just leap off the page and I love the contrast with the pink.

What a FUN art journal pages!. Love the mandala of artsy people there, and you are so clever to squeeze in 'ALL' :). Hugs.

Jaime Haney aka ArtsyFartsy.Me said...

Wow! Your wild and reckless page is just gorgeous! Your lettering looks so good and I've never heard that quote before. I just noticed on your mandala all the little muses!! This is just wonderful :)

This is such a great design-I can see you using it in many creative ways..hey, how about including it somewhere in your house painting job!

Kat W said...

Oooo how exciting:-))!!! I love my dancing muses, the gorgeous colours, the fact you've created a mandala (an art form which I'm so drawn to, that it reflects the eight of us & the quote is wonderful. And I think the 'All' is a happy accident because it looks perfect like that - accentuates & looks cool. Fab! Thank you so much! I can't wait to see it in real life.
Hugs
Kat Xx

Your mandala is really beautiful and I'm loving it against that vibrant pink and the ribbon! Great quote too - I'm finding some new favourites during this Round Robin project!

PS Is there really an ice-cream called "Wild 'N Reckless Sherbet" - what a fabulous name!

sugar Creek said...

Love this, beautiful work!

Tammy said...

Such gorgeousness!!! I love the juicy vibrant colors and the mandala is a favorite of mine. You should make copies of that for your etsy shop and the quote is perfect. Kat is going to LOVE this!! I do.

Painting and swapping is a chore but it will all be beautiful when you are done and everyone will be so happy with their rooms. And everything will be all fresh and pretty. Very rewarding in the end.
XOXO

I wondered why I hadn't seen anything new from you. Now I know you are busy changing rooms and getting your DD off to college. I sure miss you!
