Happy PINK Saturday everyone!
Happy 4th Birthday to PINK Saturday!
Congratulations to Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for hosting PINK Saturday every week and bringing us all the PINKness we can stand.
Today I want to show you what I created and what I received in a recent swap. The criteria of the swap was to create a 12"x12" canvas containing nine squares, 2"x2". After contacting my swap partner, Susie at South City Hues, I found out her tastes were very similar to mine!
I started out by washing the canvas with a soft shade of PINK acrylic paint. Once it was dry, I brushed on a pale shade of cream but this time I went back over with a dry brush and "lifted" some of the paint off of the canvas. Then the canvas sat there for two weeks because I couldn't decide what to do next. I started thumbing through my vintage images and a clear theme started to emerge, vintage Bluebirds! Here is a shot of the finished board.
Here is a close up of the sweet fairy tale girl with her bluebird friends.
And here is a close up of a couple of the squares.
This is the fabulous canvas Susie sent to me!
She visited my website and borrowed some of the pics to use on my canvas, how clever was that?!
That little munchkin with the party hat on, ready for Beverly's PINK birthday party, is yours truly!
And this sweet baby is my very own mom!
She even included a picture of my Midge doll!
And it didn't stop there! Susie tucked in all kinds of extra goodies like a sweet vintage book and hankie.
Thank you for being such a great swap partner Susie!
Have a wonderful weekend and a safe memorial day!And don't forget to stop by Beverly's and wish PINK Saturday a Happy Birthday! xxoo Nan
