It's sadly the last week of Kristin's Summer of Color ice cream challenge and this weeks flavour is Watermelon Ice - in other words bright red with dark brown (for the choc chips!).
I've really enjoyed this colour palette and ended up doing two sketchbook pages continuing my pollen theme.
I transferred the tree images using Golden Gel and then heated it around the trees to create tiny little white bubbles to represent a pollen 'haze'. The band above the trees is made of tiny little beads.
I wanted to say a big thank you to Kristin for hosting the Summer of Color Challenge and also to everyone who has so kindly stopped by and left such lovely and positive comments - every single one has been so appreciated.
Still on the this weeks colour theme I think Lobelia Cardinalis 'Queen Victoria' has to be one of my all time favourite plants - these photos are from my garden last summer as it is late flowering and not in bloom yet - I wish it went from Spring through to Autumn! I am linking these palettes to Rosie's Color Me Weekly.
I have been loving these colours and really enjoyed putting together some photo mosaics for Mosaic Monday over at Little Red House.
