Summer of Colour Week 4

Hi there...
Here is my summer of colour entry for this week...Gee...only one more artwork to go...
This one has been in my moleskine for about a year now, so I thought I'd use the colours for this week to inspire me to finish it...
I am in love with instagram....lol...and it looks so much better edited...lol...wish I could get the vivd colour in my paints...

here is the instagram photo...it says...I love you more than the blades of grass, I love you more than the sand on the beach, I love you more than the stars in the sky, I love you all the way to the moon and back again, times infinity...
I used to say many of these to the kids when they were little, though all the way to the moon and back I did not say...but I have heard this before and loved it and thought it  would go perfect with everything else I used to say...lol...here are my 6 kiddos in love you times infinity...




The first is instagram, the second is a very washed out photo of the whole page and the last is just a page I thought I'd share, many of the colours in this weeks prompt...
Thanks again Kristin over at Twinkle Twinkle and thanks for all the lovely comments....looking forward to visiting everyone's blogs too...
until next time
lots of it
Mandy

You have the BEST sayings. I can tell you make art from the heart. I like the instagram because it looks very much like the challenge colors. Beautiful.

I like both photos, but you're right, the vivid colors on the instagram really pop, and the composition is super-strong there too! Very nice work no matter how you look at it!

Delightful and quirky Mandy... aren't they just great colours.

Barb King said...

That is a really nice page and saying!

Daniele Valois said...

Gosh I love the IG pic. Yes, I adore how the colors are so bold and pop once edited. That's ok though. You can take your paintings and make wicked prints from them all edited and instagramed up! That is art!

Looks fab my dear! Sorry I am so behind!

Carmen said...

I love both versions. The vivid and the actual photo ;)

Am actually chasing my tail still catching up on people from the Strawberry lemon week and wanted to thank you for stopping by but had to comment on this one too :) (I haven't even started this weeks yet! eek!)

Jen @Sadie Inspired said...

This is darling and the words just melt my heart. My daughter and I always go back and forth with... " I love you more than..." - and then add something on the end. I love all those little, special Mommy/Kid things. :) Oh, and I am having a serious love affair with Instagram too!

joanna said...

Beautiful art, Mandy! The colours are so bright and the words are special :))
xoxo
