Pink and pink and orange

Hi Everybody!

Hope your day is going well!

The new theme at Kristin's SOC Challenge is pink+pink+orange.
I made a journal page, also meant for Art Journal Journey, masculine-feminine. I used my lady with hat who has appeared on my blog before in various guises. But I do think she looks best in pink and orange. I painted the background (A3) with gesso, and then gave it a coat of diluted orange. When it was dry I spritzed it with the darker shade of pink. I fussy cut my lady and collaged her before painting her with 2 shades of pink. The quote from Marcus Aurelius was written with a stencil.
I am also linking to Moo Mania and More, anything goes - our new challenge starts tomorrow, so come over to find what it's about!






At Tag Tuesday the theme this week is 'out of your comfort zone'. I decided to use one of my photos for the tag, something I am not really comfortable with. Perhaps I should do it more often. I mounted it onto pale pink, orange and peony cardstock.




An just for fun, I looked for flowers in pink and orange in my photo stash:










Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks for coming by!

  6. A wonderful themed post with your artwork and photographs in the pink. Love the thoughtful face with the beautiful hat and the super flowers on the tag. Best of all the wonderful bee on my favourite flower. Wild roses smell amazing. We are trying to grow some from a [pod I collected but I expect it will take years for them to flower.

    Have a great day

    Love Chrissie xx

  13. Love your piece. That quote goes well with it. She seems to be lost in thought, colorful thought. My favorite flowers are the hollyhocks. I have a lot of them growing out back. Great job on all.

  15. Valerie, I would never had thought that pink and orange would go so well together and your page today is gorgeous! I also love the flowers in pink; the hollyhock is outstanding and reminds me of our gardens at home when I was a young girl. Using your photo for your tag is wonderful too. It is fun to incorporate photos into our art and you have so many outstanding ones.

    Hugs,
    C
