By now you've probably noticed I'm all about the creativity this year. So deciding to bring back the Art Association pinterest contest was an obvious HELL YES. Are you guys ready for another round of awesome pinning? Aww yeah. Here's a little refresher on how Art Association works:

Artsy Forager and I have cooked up one awesome project that involves art, Pinterest, and YOU… we’re like arty mad scientists over here. Art Association (think word association) involves creating a Pinterest board around one work of art and all of the things you think of while looking at it. Anything and everything that comes to mind will be pinned… no holding back. The pinner who creates the BEST board will win an uh-mazing prize and some definite bragging rights. Let's get started, eh?

This month we’re looking at Christina Baker's painting Cocktail Party...

I love abstract works with cute titles, totally kick-starts my imagination. I start to create a story out of the random shapes and colors. Cocktail Party? Oh yep, those lines and colors are totally balloons... champagne... confetti... boldly dressed ladies... and a blur of flowers.
