My lemony birdie with a strawberry heart !


   Kristin at The Summer of Color: Week Three prompted us to create art using the colors of the flavor Strawberry Lemonade punch ! Now I thought of going to Baskin Robbins to check out this lip smacking flavor ...and to my utter dismay this was one of the official flavors of the month :)

I came home with their brochure and also some tissue papers....yes I surely had some plans in my mind :)

I wanted to use their brochure as my background :)



Next I layered the brochure with the 'BR' tissue paper and was happy with the textures that came up just so naturally ! I purposely left the middle section of the brochure which spoke about our flavor of the week...Strawberry Lemonade !





Then I used some newspaper and a music sheet to make my little birdie and the tree and the leaves...and also drew a few details down there with my black pen .
Coloring it all lemon yellow and strawberry pink was the most fun part and I enjoyed it thoroughly :)

I also liked the other colors of the brochure that were still peeking through the tissue layer as if trying not to miss out on the fun :)


Don't you think my lemony  birdie, with a big musical strawberry heart , is singing out loud ...all praises about the flavor of the month !

Enjoy!

  3. Love what you have made, great idea with the bird and the collage using the strawberry lemonade colours! They don't have this ice-flavour over here, but perhaps I will find it when I visit the USA again! Valerie
