Watermelon Ice


Summer of Color 's ice cream flavor for this week is Watermelon Ice. Yes, it's supposed to be all red with black pits but it's not. Deal with it. :))

I made this journal page with spray paints and acrylics. It was really fun to do but I managed to ruin my mom's baking dish in the process. It didn't occur to me until the end that the paint will not wash off. :)

The quote says, "Happiness is a state of mind. Surrender to what is. Until you accept it, you cannot change it." ~ Sonia Ricotti

And I'm so happy to share with you that one of my blind ATC's from the Friday's post has been published in Art Trader Magazine. :)
Page 26. 
And look! It's in watermelon colors. :))
They misspelled my name. :))
