Twinkle Twinkle's Color of Summer prompt was brown with a splash of color. Hmmm - I thought about it all week and was having trouble making brown work with summer. Then today's prompt from InTheSun was about a summer lemonade stand. Never had one of those and don't have any memories or inspiration there.
So, I made a generic collage using a kraft paper wrapping paper as my base - I made it larger than my book and folded over a flap that has my journaling under the flap. I used some of my stash of worldwide postage stamps, some magazine clips, rice paper jigsaw puzzle pieces and screen mesh. Not terribly inspiring, but I do like my splash of coral color (stamps from Taipei).
My hidden journaling says: "I never had a lemonade stand but loved drinking koolaid. My adult summer drink of choice is Long Island Ice Tea." (yum!)
Next week's Color of Summer is red - I LOVE red so look forward to being creative with that bright color! See other entries in the Color of Summer or the InTheSun journal pages for lots more creative ideas.
