ice cream inspirations

As I write this post :) the temp in Athens is 100 degrees! yikes!! I really wish I was at the beach...sighh,  but this studio move is like a never ending soap opera.. I counted 55 boxes! and hopefully this Sunday, the movers are taking over.  gosh, get this thing out of way, finally!
Anyway..the big news this week is summer of colour, is back this year and the theme is ice cream inspirations. When I saw the picture Kristin posted, it reminded me of  a silk shibori fabric, I had created a couple of years ago and wear it as a beach cover up.
 I don't know if you all know this, I am originally a textile artist turned into mixed media by " accident" Lol. I was preparing to teach a class on fabric printing a few years ago and didn't want to waste silk fabric, so I did my testing on paper first and... I fell in love! so here I am.
I know that this atrwork wasn't prepared this week, but the colours were so sherbet looking that I had to share :)
ps. please forgive me for not responding to my comments right away, hopefully I will be back on track by next week :))
