So when we got back last night I didn't even know the colours for this week's Summer of Color! Must admit I was a tad disappointed seeing that there was again no orange. For me, orange is the symbol of summer and sun and warmth. Plus it is my all-time favorite colour. Let's hope for the last week I can finally get my oranges out!
The colours this week are red, royal blue and a smudge of light blue:
I don't have a picture of my first layer, since I had to work fast this time :-)
But seeing it now makes it look very similar to the colours of week 2 .... The blue I used was royal blue, but looks different to the blue in the sample picture. Oh well ....
Still glad I got it ready in time :-)
And when we arrived here last night there was a surprise waiting for me in the mailbox! I had won a giveaway on Siggadis' blog! Look what I got:
I seem to be winning a lot lately, isn't that great!? There are 2 cute mini-cards, and a lovely little notebook. I so enjoy seeing what other artists create. It just makes the world nicer being surrounded by things that other people made with love. Thank you so much Siggadis ♥
In my Society6-shop they recently introduced biker tanks, and now there is a promotion of 5$ off when you buy one. On top of that there is free shipping on almost all products in my shop. But only if you use this link. I added some more shirts, and will be adding more in the coming weeks. Here are some examples:
The promo will end 13th of July at midnight.
And lastly, since I couldn't use orange in my SOC-piece, I want to share with you some pictures of beautiful Rainbow Beach, and the colours of the rocks there ....
"Way back in dream-time, there lived on the banks of the Noosa River a beautiful black maiden called Murrawar who fell in love with the Rainbow, which came to visit her here every morning. She would clap her hands and sing to this lovely rainbow.
One day the Burwilla, a very bad man from a distant tribe, stole Murrawar for his slave wife, beating her cruelly and making her do all his work, while he sat in the shade admiring his terrible killing boomerang. This boomerang was bigger than the biggest tree and full of evil spirit.
One day Murrawar ran away and as she hurried along the beach, which was all flat in those days, she looked back and saw Burwilla's boomerang coming to kill her. Calling out for help, she fell to the ground too frightened to run.
Suddenly she heard a loud noise in the sky and saw her faithful Rainbow racing towards her across the sea. The wicked boomerang attacked the brave Rainbow and they met with a roar like thunder, killing the boomerang instantly and shattering the Rainbow into many small pieces.
Alas, the poor sick and shattered Rainbow lay on the beach to die and is still there with all its colours, forming the hills along the beach."
Look at that sky .....
I just couldn't stop taking pictures. So glad I was surrounded with these beautiful colours all week.
Okay, that's it for now. Better get this post out there before the weekend is over.
Thanks so much for visiting. I'll catch up with your blogs this weekend! I'm linking this again with Summer of Color and of course Paint Party Friday.
Take care, hope you have a beautiful weekend with luscious colours ♥ ♥ ♥
