(continuing on my own) - Summer of Color 2012: Week 7: Icing on the Cake!

 I enjoyed the Summer of Color ice cream flavor/color prompts so much this that it is over...I decided to continue on my own for a little longer...probably at least to finish out the summer. I checked on Baskin Robbins web site and there are a lot of interesting flavors/colors out there I would like to try.

This ice cream is called "Icing on the Cake" and is cake flavored ice cream with cake pieces, frosting bits, and confetti ribbon! If I were closer to a Baskin Robbins I would probably try out each flavor but I don't so I can only imagine how good this one probably is!

My creation was done on a canvas panel..and I used watercolor pencils, Prisma color pencils and glitter Mod Podge over the top. I asked my son what he thought of when he looked at this and he said "The Gateway to Heaven" so I decided that would be the title.
