July Monthly Challenge - Summer Lovin'

It's time to introduce our July Challenge!  Each month we participate we grow by trying new techniques, materials, new color combinations or even just gain a better understanding of what inspires us.

Jenny of A Bird in the Hand Art came up with this month's challenge:  Summer Lovin'

She says we can do anything summer or love related or even Grease (the movie) related!  Sounds like a blast!

Grease premiered in 1978 and was the original High School Musical set in the '50's, for those of you out there that haven't seen it.  Who didn't want to be Sandy (Olivia Newton-John) winning the heart of bad boy Danny (John Travolta)?  ah... a summer romance one would never forget...

"Summer sun, something's begun
But, uh oh, those summer nights"

The innocence of first love and a simpler time, yet a time in our lives we can all relate with good girls, bad girls, and the attraction of those bad boys who took chances.

 "It turned colder, that's where it ends
So I told her we'd still be friends
Then we made our true love vow
Wonder what she's doing now..."
