The ice cream flavour chosen by
for this week's Summer of Color challenge is
"smooth vanilla flavored ice cream,
swirled with a black raspberry ribbon
and loaded with cashews." (Baskin Robbins)
Not knowing what I was going to do with this one
I started by prepping my moleskine journal
with vintage papers and gesso.
I still had my Frankenstein film/play experience
fresh in my mind and thought the colours lent
themselves to vintage anatomical images.
Of course, I went with the heart!
Thank you to the Graphics Fairy for the vintage
heart image, which I printed onto tissue paper.
The background is water soluble wax crayons.
The quote, taken from the book
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley,
is said by the poor doomed creature
and is, in full,
"I have a love in me the likes of which you can
scarcely imagine and rage the likes of which you
would not believe. If I cannot satisfy the one, I will
indulge the other."
I have tried to visit most of the other
people taking part in this fun
challenge, but as there are over
100 I haven't quite managed all.
If I haven't dropped by and
commented on yours, many
