Finale - Summer of Enchantment

Hellooooo!  It's our finale week of Summer of Color 2. For this last week Kristin has chosen the ice cream colors from BR's watermelon sorbet with chocolate chip seeds. 

To round out my theme "Summer of Enchantment", I've decided to share Little Red Riding Hood in my altered book journal.

I will be adding writing to the spread but of course I haven't been able to get to it yet,lol.

I must say I had a lot of fun with this years' challenge and I thank the lovely Kristen at Twinkle Twinkle for her hosting and organization of this very popular challenge.  Will she continue with it next year?

To you my readers, I have loved and appreciated your comments and hope you have enjoyed my content.  I must admit I was extremely busy during this time and was not able to visit all of you and thank you personally yet.  But never fear, I will get to you all!  I have to see everyone's entries and I need to pop by your blogs even if you didn't participate.  I miss you all so much!

I will be continuing to post along this Enchanted Summer theme and will be sharing painting in the future as well.

I am having to re-organize the studio once again.  Whew!  What a mess, lol!  At least it shows that I've been doing something in there.

I've got some exciting ideas to work on rest of the Summer. Hope to share more later.

Music in the studio this week was Pink!, Funhouse.  I really love "Glitter in the Air" - I never tire of it.  I also "spun" the Dixie Chicks, Fly.

Keep your personal fan pointed AWAY from your mica pigments and keep those pencils and brushes moving!

Forever in art,

We can never get enough of the Red Riding Hood, can we?

Your enchantment theme is such fun! I love Little Red's hair the way it sweeps across gives it such movement!

She is stunning - a little like Angelina Jolie with that tiny nose and lovely lips!! It's been such good fun doing this challenge and I love all the new blogs I've discovered along the way.

Your Red is gorgeous....but, of course ;P
I was so bummed we weren't driving down thru Winston this year....I'd love to stop by Looking Glass and peek into your wonderful studio and spy the infamous Magic Chair :)

Thanks for the hint about the fan...I totally would do that and have flakes everywhere....haha!

Big Hugs,

Love your Little Red. She's truly lovely. As always your shading ROCKS! Having to re-organize is an awesome sign. Means you've been playing. Can't wait to see more of your Enchanted Summer.
