Miles 3 & 4

I just want to tell you how crazy inspired I am by the lovely projects you guys have been posting in the flickr group! They're amazing.
Week 2 Craft Challenge- Yellow!

This week all projects will be using sunshine yellow! I made a cute "ombre" style painting. On a canvas or a piece of foam board, paint gradients (many shades of one color) from top to bottom. I also added the phrase "Let the sunshine in."

Don't forget to post pictures of your final projects to the flickr group!
