The Summer of Color

I love color.
Isn't it amazing how a colorful bouquet of flowers, or a pretty turquoise necklace, or a apothecary jars filled with citrus fruit can brighten up your day. 
Immediate mood enhancer right?

So me...the lover of color.. wears a lot of black & neutrals - go figure.
 I do, however dream about cute summer sandals...

 Or vibrant red jackets

And me...the lover of color..has dreams of rooms like this...


Tons of cottage white... dreamy.
But, I love color. :)

So, I am excited that Kristin over at Twinkle, Twinkle has started her 
Summer of Color. 
What a super fun way to create some art, connect, share, and grow. Each week she will give a color prompt for everyone to work on and then you can come back to link up your projects. 
She is even doing some giveaways too. Great, right?
I am really looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with this week. 
We are starting off with blue. 
My favorite color right now (it changes!) is turquoise, so I LOVE that.
We can create anything our little heart's desire. I am not sure what I will work on. I am sure it will include my XL mixed media journal from Canson, canvas, acrylics, and watercolor crayons. We'll see what else.  
Come join us for a Summer of Color.

What colors are brightening up your days of summer??



  1. Hello Jen! My favorite color is actually blue. :) But combined with other colors, I will sure love them. Good luck on your endeavor and I'm looking forward for that blue project :)

  2. Yeah! SO happy to have you join in - and what a great post - I dream of rooms in white too - my bedroom is almost there - with some robin's egg blue walls.
    Your projects and materials sound perfect - looking forward to seeing your blue, xoxo
