Summer Of Color...Lemon Fairy Cupcake


Kristin's Summer Of Color challenge is all about yellow this week. Hummm...yellow....not usually my favorite color to work with. But after a few crumpled sketches I came up with this and had fun doing it. I might even like yellow, a little bit more now. Bring it on orange! ( my least favorite color of all!) I thought I'd share a bit of my creative process with you this week too. I think it's fun to see how people come up with their ideas sometimes. Can't wait to see what everyone does this week.

I really like your yellow art. It is so bright and cheery. I like how you put the words around the flower pot. The background is really lovely with its layers. I like all the texture that it has as well.
