Summer of colour–all the fun of the fair

The fourth ice-cream inspiration from Kristin mixed pastel pinks and yellows

summer-colour-4

After letting the colours percolate in my unconscious mind for a day I was hit with the idea of balloons, candyfloss (cotton candy), flashing lights and all the fun of the fair.  That was the inspiration that I needed and I then had lots of fun creating my fourth piece

sc-4-final

And I’m pleased at how different my letters look in style as well as colour.  One of my aims with this challenge is to move away from the digi techniques I’ve settled into using recently and to play with some of the other vast range of techniques available in Photoshop Elements.

I’m also loving the variety in creative pieces that others are posting – you can see them all on Twinkle, Twinkle

Today's reminds me of the local fair with rides and plenty of cotton candy (my daughter's favorite food- keep thinking she'll out grow it but I think she may not)! Your letters together are fantastic!!
