The Summer of Colour is here.

Today is the first day of The Summer of Colour.  You can find out more about it by clicking the link in the sidebar.
Lots of people are joining in so it should be really interesting to see the diverse projects.

The first colour will be blue - yum!  I am planning a fairy dressed in blues, maybe with a blue body.  Fairies like to eat Blueberries after-all!!!

Inspired by Adriana Almanza of Doll Dreams

I'm so excited about this challenge and have already painted a colourful sunset and mermaid.
Not part of the challenge, but I have painted the mermaid in turquoise, this is the colour that represents feminine strength.  I have been sadly lacking in this of late but it is on it's way back - watch this space ;0)

Hugs, Alis
