FLAVOR OF THE WEEK SERVED ON THE SECOND FLOOR

The flavor of the week at Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Summer of Color 2 was Wild N' Reckless Sherbet.  I totally fell in love with the colors the first time I saw them.  I had been planning a canvas for my Second Floor challenge and decided that the colors would make the perfect background.


I covered an 8x10 canvas with gesso and then started dripping on reinkers, gouache paint and oil pastels one at a time and smearing them in with a credit card.  Before adding my Second Floor 'found objects' my canvas looked like this:


I then added a variety of children's game pieces to the canvas and here is the completed piece.


I hope you have enjoyed your sherbet on the second floor!  Thanks for stopping by.
