Happy Pink Saturday! I hope you are all well and enjoying the beautiful spring weather. I want to thank Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for graciously hosting our pink party every week. If you would like to visit all of the wonderful Pink Saturday participants, just click on the Pink Saturday icon in my right sidebar.
This week, I made my first visit to The Enchanted Oven. Lisa is incredibly creative, and has made some very yummy-looking works of art. Please pay her a visit, and I'm sure you'll love it as much as I did!
And now, as I promised you last week, photos of my Pink Saturday giveaway:
I've assembled a few things that I thought might be fun to use in one of your creative projects:
1.) A bouquet of lovely, crinkly pink rosebuds. You can separate them and use them individually.
2.) A large, vintage feed sack.
3.) A vintage hand-embroidered doily with a crocheted edge. This might be lovely on a pillow.
4.) A 1 1/2 yard length of antique pleated trim.
5.) A pink and white striped apron, designed and hand made by me. The overskirt is trimmed in a vintage pink floral trim.
I've also be busy working on a new painting. I was able to order some artist grade watercolors for my birthday last week Playing with color is so much fun! I've been reading a book called Confident Color, by Nita Leland to learn more about how to use color successfully. She has you do all kinds of excercises with your paints in order to get to know how they will perform. She then has you record the results in a sketch book journal for future reference.
I practiced mixing colors before I started my painting. I was amazed at the difference between artist grade paints and student grade paints. The artist grade is saturated with pigment, and the color fairly explodes on the page!
I worked out a drawing on my computer.
I transfer the drawing to watercolor paper with graphite paper.
I used one of my photos from Longwood Gardens as my inspiration photo.
Can you tell that I love vibrant color?
Thank you so much for sharing Pink Saturday with me. I'm thrilled when you come to visit!
God bless you!
Until next time,
