Paint Party Friday and the Summer of Color....Purple....and some news!!!

purple birds


I have been meaning to attend the amazing event that Kristin has going on all summer....called the Summer of Color....and I finally decided that today I would work on something for Paint Party Friday and the Summer of Color together.....so I created these purple birds....

I also have another project I am working on for Help International....

They have a picture book in the works to help educate women....and contacted me to work on the book....I always love to help whenever I can....so here is a draft I created to depict two women in the book....

Help International


Happy Friday Everyone....always be grateful and remember to do something good each and every day....

Hugs
Diana

These birds are just "flights of fancy!" Love the block print they form in mirror image. They would make a great fabric pattern. Do you know about www.spoonflower.com?
