This week’s challenges

 Summer of Color: Week 4

Color pallet this week is Pink & Apple Green, with a Smudge, Splash or Pop of Dark Green.  Fun colors!  I had no idea what to do until I received a small goodie bag of die cuts from @Kimmi50)  over at Swap-bot.  Inside was a dress form in the shades of this week’s challenge. 

I dug through my scrapbook papers and went to work mod podging them down then used bubble wrap to put the paint down.  Fun, freeing, and easy!  The photo is from the Grand Rapids Art Prize.  My original thought was to use a photo of pink phlox but I loved this VW Bug and it was the perfect shade of apple green. 

After finishing the page I sprayed it with Heidi Swapp’s color shine spray.

Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt:

 Did not fare as well this week but I love the rural landscape I was able to find.  We wanted to get out of the house as it was such a gorgeous day!  We visited the beach at Seven Lakes State Park then went for a short hike.  Got this shot: 
#18: A water fall (2nd shot)

Could not resist snapping this photo of Orange Milkweed - Asclepias tuberosa.

 The hubby drove the back roads home in hopes of finding a cool farm, field, and/or fence.  I saw this and knew this was the shot. 
#7: A rural landscape

This barn with the mural was across the road.  Rather unusual so I snapped a shot of it as well.

Reminder: Giveaway ends Monday, July 7th.
