Summer of Colour - Aqua Blue, Yellow, Hot Pink

Well here it is – another Summer of Colour with Kristin….I had so much fun with it last year (remember my Girls of Summer postcards) that I decided to join again – though I may not be “on time” for a couple of my submissions because of other stuff going on. I decided I wanted to do Boys of Summer this year (seems fair) but I must say the first colour choice posed a challenge – Aqua Blue, Yellow and a splash of Hot Pink – not too masculine! But heh, as Tim Gunn says, “make it work” LOL … Dug through my old photo collection and found some great images.
This is Sam with his buddies Shorty and Johnny. They’ve just been told the two most dreaded words any kid could hear this time of year…
…Summer School! What do you mean Miss Jones – it ain’t fair!!!!
Used my Gelli Plate (aqua blue acrylic), a water colour wash (yellow) and stamping (hot pink) for the background as well as an old teacher's stamp. There is still time to join the fun if you are interested – check it out…Enjoy, Jewels
