Summer of Color Week 3 - Baseball Nut

Here is my effort creation for week 3 of the Summer of Color challenge over at Twinkle, Twinkle - each week Kristin gives us a different icecream flavour for inspiration and this week it was "Baseball Nut". Now, I had never heard of this (probably can't get it in the UK) but it looks and sounds deLISH

A smooth, vanilla flavored ice cream swirled with a black raspberry ribbon and loaded with cashews"
-Baskin Robbins
Mmmmmmmm......anyway I digress - and I am in danger of dribbling on my keyboard! 
I've been wanting to have a go at ATCs for a while now, so I decided I'd try and produce one for each of these six weekly challenges. Not sure how successful they are so far, but I'm having a lovely time! 
I got really messy with gesso, tissue, inks and liquid pearls for this one. I've also started working on a little fold-up book to put them all in at the end.
If you haven't already, pop over and have a look at some of the amazing pieces of art which people have created for this challenge - I'm embarrassed to put mine on there really, but everyone's so supportive and in any case, every journey has to start with that first step ...

You shouldn't be embarrassed, I learned last year (my first summer of color challenge) that it doesn't matter what your ability or strengths, everyone enjoys seeing what others have made. Come by for a visit!
