Today we are starting a new challenge at More Mixed Media Challenge Blog. As always, our challenges are anything mixed-media goes, this time with optional purple. I made an A3 Journal page.

I am also linking to Paint Party Friday and to AJJ, where Halle has chosen the topic of 'A stitch in time'.

She decided to go horse-riding instead, even though the horse was not pink! So here a pink dress:
