This Week....



Summer of Color




The colours for Summer of Color this week were charcoal and pink.  I must admit the colours together were outside of my comfort zone.  I fluffed about for a while, however a dream came to the rescue.  I dreamt I was in the dark and reaching out and a flower appeared in my hand and I went to sniff it but there was no smell and it disappeared.  Yeah I know you could have a field day interpreting it! So, you are looking at my picture and thinking but that’s a shoe…?  Well there’s a story, Giggles reminded me of it with her shoe inspired icads.  I have a pair of red high heels in my wardrobe, I never wear them, haven't done for years, think I would fall off them now, these days I am into comfort big time.  I had them in my glamour days, hehe.  Well, I did seduce the love of my life in them, tut, tut, I was wearing a little black dress.  Yeah I still got that too, probably wouldn’t fit on my leg now!  I only painted them pink because it the colour of SOC, der!  I am quite glad that in my dream the flower didn’t smell, because, it would not have been so pleasant for my beauty if the shoes smelt.

My Giveaway Journal


  This is the next spread of the journal I am making for my give away at the end of the month.  If you would like to go into the draw please leave a comment, I will randomly pick from the comments of posts during July.
 

This week I was inspired by Pablo Picasso’s quote: “Everything you can imagine is real.”


More Postcards
 
As well I am giving away two postcards each week to a blogger who leaves a comment.  Last week the winner was Kat of Creations, she chose Princess and Hollyhocks.  So they will winging their way to her next week. (the postcards are on my Postcards page, Tab at top)

I have become addicted to making postcards and did 4 more during the week.  They will also be available to winners of the draw)






The other thing I did this week was 7 more icads, I will post them tomorrow as I think that this is more than long enough!

  9. I am laughing here :-D Not to You but with You. Your painting about talking itself is wonderful. I'll tell about it to my husband. He always talks and I ask to whom You speak. He answers that somebody wise who listens.

    You have been very busy and painted very much. I like Your colors and light and ideas of course.
    Have a nice Weekend :-)
