PINK Saturday

I listened to everyones wonderful ideas on my lettering...I'll have to go back over my comments to see who came up with this idea so I can give her a tag...I'll let you know who it is. Anyway, when I paint...some days I feel like painting light and airy, sometime very antiquey and aged. So, when I got started working on the letters, I had to make some corrections which means I had to try to hide it by antiquing it...I darkened the eggs a bit...I like how it turned out. Thank you all for your input! Did I mess it up?? lol
I wont be able to post tomorrow, so I'm getting an early start. I just finished another order for magnets using watercolor paper and watercolors.

I just finished this too. I painted a piece of canvas layering pinks and tans to get an old aged look. I then wanted the bird and rose to look aged too. The green fabric is a piece of silk that was a blouse a touch of lace, piece of vintage music, old buttons. a bit of bling.
Please check out Beverly from How Sweet the Sound for a list of participants.
