Summer of Color 2012 Challenge Week 6 – Watermelon Ice

Well, it's the sixth and final week of the Summer of Color 2012 challenges.  Once again, this has been one of my very favorite blog challenges and I'm sorry to see the fun end so quickly. 

This week the challenge was watermelon ice, one of Baskin-Robbin's flavors.  This is the photo and again I created my color palette in Photoshop.

I love pink and red together, so this was great fun for me.  I used watercolor brushes in Photoshop to create many, many different layers, and used a drop shadow for each and this week didn't flatten everything out like I did last week and failed to notice (…sigh…) until after I had posted my blog entry.  I like how it turned out…I still have so much to learn, but I'm having so much fun creating digitally.  I love how I can turn layers off and on and redo anything I'm not happy with…an important tip though…save work in progress because you never know when you might want to go back in and change something!

Thank you Kristin (Twinkle, Twinkle) for another memorable summer challenge!  I can't wait for next year…well…I hope you'll be doing this again next year!

And, as always, thanks to all of you who have stopped and left such lovely comments!  What was YOUR favorite flavor? 

Hugs and Toodles!

  5. this is beautiful! I love the background although I couldn’t possibly agree with the quote – forget art – I’d never have met so many lovely art bloggers otherwise!!

  6. LOL! I have to agree with you!!! That’s why I chose this quote…the irony of it…if not for art, I wouldn’t have used the quote! I thought it gave a bit of twist to the challenge! Thanks for stopping by! I’ve had so much fun with this challenge! Hugs!

  7. Beautiful. Love everything on it!!!
