Summer of Color is a 6-week art party lead by Kristen of Twinkle Twinkle. I participated last year for the 4th go-round, and I had so much fun that I'm back at it again for Summer of Color 5!

I used this pattern as surface design on some home decor and accessory items in my shop. Here is a sampling of my kitchen & dining products with these designs:
