Summer of Colour Week 2


I've had a lovely (and exhausting!) time visiting everyone who joined in with Summer of Colour last week. Wasn't able to comment on every post, but be assured I did come to visit. If you want to join in the fun, click on the Summer of Colour 3 button in the sidebar.

This week the yummy colour scheme is hot pink and orange, which immediately took me back to the seventies, my pre-teenage years. The word that popped into my head was 'groovy' which immediately took me to the Simon and Garfunkel song. As I was taken to a song last week, too, I thought I'd keep up with the emerging theme. We'll see if it holds up next week...

Anyway, here's a close-up of the spray work, done with a spray diffuser. It can leave you a little light-headed if you're too enthusiastic :)


After chewing over the problem with the upside-down video last week, entertaining various Heath Robinson contraptions using plumber's pipe, chemistry set retort-stands, and the like, my husband came up with the simple solution of a microphone stand. Perfect! So here is video for this week. Next time I'll lift the camera a little to bring in the very edges of the page. Eventually I'll get there.
