Think Pink!

Pink is not a colour I use very much - but it can be very beautiful... a recent sunset...

and the Oleander in the garden...

So when Carolyn Dube's playstarter prompt this week was beautiful, I decided to go pink...

I am adding to a junk journal made of upcycled cardboard pieces - this page started with a background using Gelatos.

A new stencil (Studio Light MASKSL50)  had arrived in the post - so I used this with Dina Wakley Magenta acrylic as a next layer. I added a little piece of book paper bottom left (showing the word beautiful).

I then added hearts die cut from Leigh's Raggedy Hearts background, printed and coloured with markers. I added picked raspberry Distress Ink around each heart.

I also added this Distress Ink on the book paper.

Finally I added flowers, stamped with Altenew (Brush Art Floral) stamps in three colours of pink from my Distress Ink collection, cut out and with added black fineliner.

I will link this page to Leigh's 2022 Challenge #2 Let Love Bloom

The current challenge at Lost Coast Portal to Creativity is Think Pink so I will also add this page there.

Happy Crafting!
