Pink Saturday: Ciao Bella

It has been a while since I have participated in Pink Saturday and I have missed it.

ciao-bella-jan09

I created this 5 x 5 inch (12.7 centimeters) collage with the lovely lady in pink , one of my favorite birds and  rubber stamps from several different companies.  It all began with a background pullout page from Somerset Magazine that a favorite artist and teacher, Misty Mawn, created for general use.

I will leave you with this quote from, of all places, the inside of a Magic Hat beer cap, “Raise hopes,  not fear”.

Happy Pink Saturday!

  13. Sigh…. how beautiful! That dusty pink color is sooooo lovely. The whole thing is so pretty.

    I always say, you can find truth anywhere if you’re searching for it (and see? I was right… it’s everywhere, even under beer caps!)

    Thank you for your awesome support on my qutting smoking!! Oh, and I love lavender, too. I had a great bedsheet lavender mist that did wonders for getting me instantly relaxed and ready for sweet dreams. Ran out. Gotta find it again. ((((BIG ‘OL HUG))) Serena Pia
