Summer of Color... Pink

Good Morning!! well I survived the 4 days of working.. but am feeling like it should be the weekend??? lol but I do have 2 days off now.. my intention was to go to the gym this morning but I have a flat tire.. so a post it is!
I had so much fun with this pink... it's a 5x7 canvas with the cc technique with all different shades of pink..and a little gold for bling.. isn't she just perfect? I got her from a free collage sheet from Gaby Cajubrasil's blog a very long time ago..She makes the most beautiful art...and her blog was one of the first that inspired me to try altered art..
Its hard to see but there are pink circles on the paper I wrote on..I chalked her dress and the edges on the lace and the wings of the butterflies too....with Pink of course...if you get a chance check out the lovelies from all the participants at the Summer of Color..(did you notice that I am finally not transposing the words in this? I do that alot with numbers but didn't realize that I did it with words too...lol)
Everything in my "feeder" garden is growing just loverly.. should have lettuce within the week...I should explain.. we have had so much water over the past 4 years that most of the gardens around here are done.. they are still so wet and have pretty much reverted to grass & weeds.. it will take years to get them back soooooo... my garden is in the 2 cattle feeders that we weren't using anymore.. they are 2 feet off the ground, have good drainage and even though it's not alot of produce it's a taste.. a neighbor was in buying pots one day for planting her garden  in too..and we were laughing about how sad it is.. with all this land around us..we're planting in pots..so here's a peek at my lettuce and one of my loverly spaghetti squash blooms..

Well I have to paint fast this 2 days off.. I want to join a promotion over at the Old Farmhouse Gatherings Artisan's Etsy group and have nothing painted yet to put in it.. oh and then there will be Christmas in July too...
So have a loverly day, even if it is Monday.... Thanks for stopping by...

  5. You page is gorgeous! There is never too much pink for me! I know what you mean about planting in containers. We've had too much rain again and all my soil is slippery clay. Then the sun comes and bakes it hard. I just can't work the soil right now so containers it is!

  11. Gosh that gorgeous Kathy! You sure do seem busy with all of your activities!

    I wish we had some of your rain! We're in a terrible draught here and it's terrible seeing everything wilt and crackle. Container gardens are a great idea!

  14. What is CC technique Kath? The credit card and paint? I am still stuck on my pink card, my first idea didn't work.
    Love your canvas and our garden is really late this year. Had to replant beans and they are slow coming up as well. Potatoes doing well and we have small tomatoes coming.
    Enjoy your couple days off and hope you get that flat fixed soon.

  21. That's too funny that you have a garden in cattle feeders. :) I love it! At least you're getting home-grown produce, right? :)
