I scream for ice cream!!!

I couldn't help myself guys! When I saw this picture of this little girl it just popped in my head for her to scream " OMG I scream for ice cream!"

If you go over to www.twinkletwinklelikeastar.blogspot.com you can play too for another Summer of Color!

This one is a board canvas and I really like these because they are stronger and they have those sides I can do stuff on too.

I started with pieces of vintage paper from receipt books and glued them down. I then added some gesso to help blend them together. I added some washes orange and wiped some off. I used  a circle stencil to add some pink. I scraped on some white and pink as well and even let it run down the top.

I added some stamps and ink around the edges of the canvas and stamped the sides. I glued down the images and added some details and boarder at the bottom. I really like this one and it makes me smile and giggle when I see it so I think it served it's purpose. I do hope she makes you smile and giggle a  little to! So go play and make some art and a mess and have some fun!

this made me laugh out loud... that is just what my daughter used to look like when she wanted something... never ice cream, she loved capsicums and had a pet spoon... always a bit odd when she was little, but quite normal now!!! What great page and I can't wait to see what you do next week...xx
