an unofficial pink saturday

It's good to be back home. After a painfully long drive through Friday rush hour traffic we stumbled back in before 10 this evening. I missed my art stuff and my Luna who was so happy to see me. I finally sat down to catch up on bloggyland and saw that Eleni from A Pink Dreamer was sweet enough to feature me for Pink Saturday. Oh dear. I'm actually not on the Pink Saturday list this weekend as I told Beverly I'd be taking a break for a couple of weeks. But I couldn't disappoint Eleni and anyone that might stop by so I scratched my head and asked my brain to come up with something pink....


And I saw my pink and black box sitting under my tea cart and thought it's been a while since I had a peek inside. Surely there's something pink in there.



Look! I do have pink in here. My first art journal that was a project from Kelley Rae Roberts' book Taking Flight. This was the project that inspired me to try mixed media collage. I had never tried painting faces before but I enjoyed making this journal so much that I found I actually loved painting this fairy.



Oh and Vanita Crumpet (in pink) and her friend Hyacinth! They've been tucked away in here since I did a few little stories about them and their friend Mrs Pennie Bunny last spring. I didn't want to startle them so I kept the flash off on my camera. We're working strictly by chandelier light as it is after midnight....again, lol.



More pink. This is a coffee filter paper rose from another spring project. I think I need to try something new with those coffee filters again. Hmmm...

Well there you have it. My unofficial Pink Saturday post which has me thinking that maybe I don't need that break from Pink Saturday after all. Oh and I did sneak out to play the piano very quietly last night (I just used the very very high keys on the right). I still remembered how to play a little bit of Claire de Lune and you know when we were driving home tonight there was the most beautiful crescent quarter moon in the sky. I thought of my late night musical adventure and that tune stayed in my head while I followed that magical moon home. La bella luna.

Here is Claire de Lune played by someone who plays MUCH better than me!
This piece is so beautiful and one of my favorites (and I didn't realize they used this in the movie Twilight because I have never seen any of the movies yet and just found out while looking for a video on YouTube!)


Happy Pink Saturday!
Go visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for more pink.
