I do not like my Pink! Boo.

This weeks Summer of Color (notice thingy in sidebar) is Pink!  Sadly, I am not loving my pink. I don't know, it just didn't work the way I wanted.  Ugh.  However, when I think pink, I think love!  Don't we all?   I also think the Dr. Seuss line, But when my days are happy PINK, it's great to jump and just not think!"  hehe.  So, I have actually worked in a lot of pink this year.  I have had a tough year, and often, when I am creating, I either focus on my my pain, or my joy. Sometimes I force myself to focus on joy, and it helps me out of my pain.  So, here it is.

Edit!!!  Here is my new Pink!

I added in a horizon line, my first time.  Not sure how it worked.  I was going for a double horizon line, see bottom pic, but whatever!  Can you tell I am displeased?  Also, the writing it is brown, but I think the brown too dark.  I may change this, but I thought I should quit for now.

This is where I was going, and now I wish I would have stayed working with this, minus the butterfly.


and I took this photo today of my roses!
(unedited)

and here are some pink pieces I like from this year!
 This piece will be in the Fall Somerset Memories under Family Album!  I don't know if I am suppose to say that or not!???


 My first face!

 I love these letters! Hmm, they may be more red than pink!


Um, ok, this looks more blue, however in person the pink shines!  There is pink glitter everywhere too!




My first attempt at a Julliete Crane Owl!

So this has been my year in pink!  Thanks for looking, and I am excited to see all the pink this week!

  16. I actually love your first picture of your pink art. it is so sweet the three sisters together. It makes my heart shrink. I love the writing and it doesn't seem too dark from the picture, but I guess that you can soften it a bit.
    I DO like your contribution to this week and all the pink candy that you have given us.

  25. I think that you are very talented. I like your pink piece and I think that the horizon line works well. Hopefully you will be able to get it to go where you meant it to go with just a bit more work, but it is looking good already. I love your beautiful rose, and the cardboard letters, and all the rest of your pink pieces.
