I Scream, You Scream . . .



We all scream for Ice Cream . . . 

It's that time of year again! The highly anticipated (and ever so fun ;) blog hop is back: join us for The Summer of Color 2, a fabulous FREE event celebrating art in all of it's hues.

(web source)


Beginning Monday, June 4th, pop over here for six (6) weeks of creative prompts inspired by the colors and textures of our favorite ice cream flavors. All mediums are welcome - from inchies, to moo cards, to ATC's, postcards, jewelry, greeting cards, scrapbook layouts, canvas work, altered books, journal pages, assemblage art, digital art and even poetry and photography - as long as it features the "Flavor" of the week. It's all about color, connection and fun during the lazy days of Summer.

As with last year, there will be weekly color prompts, weekly linking opportunities and weekly giveaways open to all who take the plunge . . . 

Hungry for more? Read all the details here, check out the (over 400!) pictures from last year's event here and get started on the conversation by joining The Summer of Color Facebook group here.

It's gonna be a Summer full of bold colors, beautiful textures and sticky fingers. After all, what could be better than art & ice cream . . .

See you soon,
Kristin xo
