I have been busy making more cuffs this week for summer of color. I made some extra cuffs this week as well. It has been fun and easy to put all these color combos together and find just the right accents for each one. The color combo for this week was purple and lime green.
I also have a few journal pages to share. The first one is from a Lifebook lesson and the second one is from a family walk.
Have a great week everyone.
The colors for this week of Summer of Color are Hot Pink and Orange. These colors remind me of hot summer days eating sherbet. I had a lot of fun working on these each evening this week.
While I have been making cuffs my daughter asked me to make her a steam punk style cuff as well.
Now you know what I have been up to this week art wise. I hope you enjoy all the summer colors.
I am participating in Summer of Color again this summer. This week the color challenge is to use Citron Green and Turquoise in any kind of project. I dyed fabrics to use in my fabric before I made anything. Here are the fabrics I dyed. The green fabrics were all in the same dye bath, but the silk always comes out lighter than the cottons. I dyed the lighter turquoise this week and the darker piece came from an earlier dye bath that had some other colors mixed in.
I decided to make cuffs this week. These colors look light and fresh to wear for the summer, so it is perfect for here where I live.
Here is the second cuff that I made using these colors.
I hope that you enjoyed this post and come on over and join in on the Summer of Color fun. http://twinkletwinklelikeastar.blogspot.com/2013/06/the-summer-of-color-week-one.html
I have been busy with my daughter's graduation celebration and all that goes with it, but I have had time to work in a few creative projects. Our party is tomorrow, so after that I will have more free time. I love celebrating my children's accomplishments, but it does make me pretty busy.
This is a journal page to celebrate my graduate.
I had to try out the new stencils from Artistcellar that are pods. This is one page that I made using them.
Here is another page that I made using a different pod stencil from the series.
Here is a close up of the stencil. I put this on with gel medium and then painted over it.
My daughter is a music lover so I used sheets from songs that she played and sang to make a box for her cards at her party.
I made this sign to go on the wall for her party.
That is all I have to share for now, so I'll see you around soon. Next week I'm going to start making art for Summer of Color 2013. You can find more info on that in the side bar.

I have a loving husband who thinks I'm a bit crazy to be so obsessed with art. I am a mother of five children from ages 21 to 5. I spend most of my time mothering and keeping house. In my free time I like to play with textiles, art journaling and painting. I have a degree in textile and apparel studies with a design focus. Right now I am more interested in fiber arts than apparel design, but I don't know where my journey will take me.
Check out my husband's website. He is a writer and has written about our life and many other amusing stories.
