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!
