Summer Of Colour: Baseball Nut (Fail)



Hi everyone :-)

It was a close call as to weather I was going to get this weeks Summer Of Colour done!! I had real trouble coming up with anything and the thing I did do in the end looks nothing like the Baseball Nut ice cream picture that was posted :-( I was going to do another ATC but I decided to use my Moleskine in the end!


I feel the need to apologise for this :-S I mean really, what does this have to do with baseballs or nuts?? :-P On the plus side I like the effect I got by just outlining the ice cream in the middle and i love the swirly background!! The colours don't show up great but the pinks are supposed to be the sauce that swirls through the ice cream and the yellow is the vanilla! I chose yellow because vanilla to me screams cream and I don't do cream haha!! It kind of looks like a mishmash of sherbet rainbow and mint choc chip......... I used coloured pencils and a black marker on this! I love colouring with pencils although the ones used here were quite cheap and not blendable at all :-P

I have yet to look on the Twinkle Twinkle blog for the next colour prompt but I am excited! I'm hoping I can pull something a bit better out of the bag this time!! I'm just off to look at all the other fab pieces of art :-D See you at the other side!!

  2. The next colour prompt scares me... which I think means you will love it! :D

    You do realise you used the word "like" and "love" about parts of this? So why are you apologising? Dafty!

    I love it and I love that you did it in your Moleskine too! Just you wait till you see mine - you'll see the non-resemblance then!

  12. You're fine, the challenge doesn't have to do with baseballs or nuts, just the color of the ice cream. And you did it. I like it.

  13. We are always our own worst critics. I think you did a great job. After all, the background looked like the ice cream colors. Pretty special, if you ask me!!

  20. You are funny - this page is great, perfect for this week's SOC flavour. The SOC colour/flavour is just a prompt, you can then take it where you want!

    See you next week at SOC!

  21. I really like the effect you created! The colorful swirly background contrasting with the simple lines and shape of the ice cream cone. Nothing to apologize for!

  25. I don't think the art piece has to have anything to do with the name of the ice cream.....we're just to use it as inspiration, a jumping off point for colors. And you did that beautifully! Cool drawing...simple and summery!

  26. Oh too funny, it was hard for me too...and noone ( including me ) had ever heard of baseball nut...mine kinda ended up a little on the patriotic side, but in raspberry, lol Oh well, we move onto the next prompt, strawberry lemonade, much easier this time! And used some of the brads that you sent me too! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)
