Summer of colour–wild snorkelling

Another spectacular ice-cream palette from Kristin for us to play with this week

summer-of-colour-5

As soon as I saw this one I thought of the wonders of the underwater world when snorkelling and used this as my inspiration for my ‘T’ block.

Even though I use Photoshop Elements a lot I was surprised and delighted with how well I could make a translucent letter that was still easily visible. I’ve been enjoying this challenge so much and sorry that I’m about to work on the last palette for this year.

Check out all the wonderful pieces that others have created using these colours.

Just love the colours this week and your "T" block is super and certainly shows a magical underwater world.

Oh that's gorgeous love the swirls on the page and the vibrancy of the piece - utterly gorgeous! Could do with your photo and paint chips for the last week because to me it just looks like red and black LOL! Hope you're having a great week.

Someone else used some pastels, and I think those worked really well, too. Makes me want to pull mine out.
