Watermelon Ice.....

Sadly......It's the final prompt
over at Kristin's
Week 6
is....
Watermelon Ice.....
I've had so much fun playing along with colours out of my colour comfort zones...
...and I struggled with this weeks colours.
In the end I decided to do another little journal page....

And had a little play with collaging, drawing and painting

 I've really enjoyed this weekly challenge.
 it's been great fun blog hopping...peeking at so much varied art and lovely talent out there!!
....So Thank you again Kristin and all the lovely people visiting me and for your wonderful encouraging comments!
 Thanks for peeking!

  10. I can't understand how these colors had you struggling, when, in the end, this was one perfect spread in your journal. It's really been fun seeing what you create each week and this one was no exception.
