Artful Journeys Week 28

Well, summer has come to Texas and I can finally eat one of my favorite treats without getting strange looks.  Ice cream!  I LOVE ice cream...

So for this week, I used a background that I had created a couple of weeks ago, when I was working on my July calendar.  I grabbed some cardboard for my ice cream cone, and a book page and a couple of pieces of painted paper to make my "scoops".  Once I had it all glued down, I grabbed my Marks-all pencil and outlined it, then used a water brush on it...just to give it a little depth.

Next I hit up my favorite inspiration destination for a quote about ice cream.  I played around with a few, but the minute I found the one I used, I knew I had to use it.  It's something I used to tell my kids all the time when they were little...or at least, something similar.

So here are some shots of my spread. It was a lot of fun creating this week...

And here are a few other things I worked on this week...

A coloring sheet from Tesselations by Creative Haven, colored with Crayola and Prismacolor colored pencils.

 Next are some ICADs that I worked on this last week....I'm still behind but I am trying hard to catch up.  Most of these are made with bits and pieces of happy mail or assorted papers.

 And, finally, a couple of swaps I sent out for one of the groups I belong to...

Well, that's all from me for this week's post.  Thanks for stopping by to look around, I hope you enjoyed your visit.  Be sure to say hi before you go to see the other girls!
