Mint Chocolate Chip - Summer of Color




This weeks Summer of Color ice cream inspiration over at Kristin's blog is mint chocolate chip.  Yummm....  I'm loving the sheer variety and creativity I'm getting to see as I look through everyone's blogs for these challenges.  I had no idea where I was going when I sat down to start this piece, but somehow I ended up with this.



On wood, with old papers, old handmade lace, wax, a frozen Charlotte, and misc bits and pieces.

  6. Talk about love at first sight. I think this one is even better than the one you showed the first week, and I thought IT was perfect. The subtle use of the green in the paper really brings this color combination home. Stunning!!

  7. Just love when things happen and come together. This is a stunning piece. Is that one of those broken china dolls? have seen them around, adds a nice touch to your artwork.

  8. Oh that was weird..... I thought exactly the same as Joanna (my sister in law!)

    Looking at this wonderful piece I see tree trunks in the drippy paint(?), with the lace looking like tree tops. Its truly stunning..... and I do LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

  10. Wow Terri, this piece is exquisite - I love your layers, and the green text showing through, and of course the butterflies/moths - in fact absolutely EVERYTHING about it! I don't know how you do it, but every piece of your art I would so happily have hanging on my wall at home. This one is just gorgous.
    Just like Karen, I also had to look up Frozen Charlottes - and now I know!
