This week's ice cream inspiration on Kristin's Summer of Color week 5 challenge is called Wild and Reckless, I love the name, although I'm not sure I'd eat that ice cream!
This will be my last week to participate - starting Saturday I'll be on vacation for 9 days (Pismo Beach!), so I'll have to miss the last week. But I just want to say how fun it's been, and so good for me to have to stretch and use colors I wouldn't normally use. Thank you Kristin and all the wonderful participants - I've so enjoyed looking at everyone's art and seeing new (to me) blogs.
I've been itching to do something with a large piece of chipped, rusty old ceiling tin I've had for a while, and last week I had my oh-so-handy man cut me out a little bird from it. So I decided to somehow use it in this week's challenge - definitely not an obvious combination, to me anyway, so I struggled with it.
This is plaster on a really thick piece of something that I re-used - with lots of bits from my stash to decorate the bird. It was fun once I decided what I was actually doing.
