Make It Mondays - Pink, I think

Pink Honeymoon
This week's Make It Mondays theme is Pink, so I made this ATC "Pink Honeymoon" using images from the Ten Two Studios Little Pink Things and Little Love collage sheets, which seemed appropriate for February. The ribbon is more pink that it looks in the scan. The train was from a Dover clip art book.

I don't think of pink as being one of my colors, and yet the background for this ATC is a pink paint chip that I picked up when I trying to figure out what to paint the wall around the fireplace in our living room.

I finally settled on "Tree Peony" which was a little too flat salmon pink when I finally got it on the wall (and alarmed my husband with its pinkness ;o). So I kept piling other colors (Ash Violet & Sunflower Yellow) on top to see what would happen. I still can't decide if I like it, but its main purpose was to provide a contrasting background for a white Hoosier cabinet (and a mess of art supplies) while not clashing too horribly with the stone and wood around the fireplace. Maybe I'll paint it purple in another few years.

Love the pink collage, although I am another person who doesn't normally do pink ( well, would you expect me to?). I do think that you have made a great job of this work. - John

Thanks John - Pink is OK in small doses but I don't want to make a habit of it ;O)

I'm not much of a 'pink' person either, but that shade works beautifully on your wall! Whoda thunk it? Lovely collaged ATC!!

Thanks, Rosie - I really wanted to have a blue wall, but it just didn't go with the fireplace. But I may go purple next time! (Some friends of ours looked at it when we hadn't painted yet, and told us to paint it grey or black. Um, yeah.)
