pretty in pink

Pink is one of my favorite colors to wear and to work with. I used to have such an aversion to all things pink! I was such a tomboy when I was a kid and I rejected all things girly and frilly long into my teens and twenties.

Little by little, pink won it's way into my heart and I went through this total pink phase in my late twenties--I think it was just the pendulum swinging the other way! I had to make up for all those years of being so anti-pink.

Now I'm a little in the middle. I love pink in my waredrobe and art here and there. I'm mostly a bright and bold color gal, but pink and dainty will always have a place in my heart. ;)

Today was the final day in the monochrome journal pages challenge hosted by Misty Mawn. What a wonderful color to end such a wonderful journey! I can't believe how much art journaling I did this week! More than I have in a whole year combined, I think! And tomorrow starts off a whole new week of daily challenges!

Monday - embellishments. buttons, beads, fabric added to the page.
Tuesday - word art. focus on one word... create a page around that word.
Wednesday - altered photo. take one photo of your own, alter it any way you wish
Thursday - crayons only day... nothing else. explore your inner child. ;-)
Friday - create a work of art /journal page inspired by your favorite artist.
Saturday- share your art... make a piece of art as a gift today, give it away.
Sunday - shapes. pick one shape and go from there.

I'm so excited! Will you join in on the fun?
