Since the summer is in full swing and the temperatures are soaring, I thought this would be a good month to cool things down a bit. Shout out to my Instagram followers who shared their favorite summertime cold treats - I've incorporated many of your yummy suggestions into this month's prompt list! :)
Here are the four prompts for July...
If you're new to the newsletter, how you interpret the prompts is entirely up to you – the goal is to simply to spark your creativity on those days when you feel stuck. Here are a few loose suggestions to get you started if you're not sure where to begin.
Cones & Cups: Think ice cream cones, snow cones, gelato, frozen yogurt or sorbet… whether it comes in a cup or a cone, here's a chance to feature your favorite. You could illustrate the treat itself, hand letter a cute sign for an ice cream shop or add a face, arms and legs to turn the treat into a cute character.
Juicy Pop: Whether it's fancy fruit pops, homemade juice pops or cocktail popsicles with a kick - think of creative ways incorporate popsicles into your art.
On Ice: Illustrate your favorite ice cold beverage… or you could even hand letter the recipe! Iced tea, iced coffe, lemonade, slushies, margaritas - whatever gives you that summertime vibe.
Scoops & Beyond: Since ice cream was by far the most popular answer when I asked about your favorite cold treats, it's getting a second spot on the list. This prompt, however, will focus on all the other ways we can indulge in our favorite cold treat: a cold scoop of ice cream melting on top of a warm slice of pie, a fully loaded ice cream sundae, ice cream floats, ice cream sandwiches… there are so many options!
