Pretty in Pink
I also long for feminine colors such as pink and pale green (even though my favorite color is blue!) So, I get in touch with my feminine side with my art. For example, here are two mirrors that I got at a Goodwill store. They were pretty beat up and chipped. So, I just started playing around with what I had on hand...some paint samples, a broken dragonfly wand (it was being thrown away) and ribbon that I found in my gift wrapping drawer. Oh, what a coat of primer and some pretty pale pink will do! And, you'll never guess how I made the polka dots. A Nerf dart! (Told you that you wouldn't guess.) It was just laying there on the floor (like everything else in our house) and I picked it up and started dipping it in my paint and stamping. You never know.
