Another Pink Saturday

Happy Pink Saturday everyone!

I decided to focus on some pink journaling, especially when I talked about scraps for journals last week.

I am working on the background for now...I used some crayons in different pink colors and layered it with some gesso and some powdered pigments (Pearl Ex).

While I am on the road tomorrow, going to a winery festival up near Cleveland, Ohio (town of Kirtland), I will work on my journal page more. Hubby and I are going to be volunteering with a local winery (from here at home in Columbus) to help keep things organized and to pour wine samples for all of the visitors. So no doubt my journal will be based on the event.

Aaaah...the pure simplicity of crayons and paint.

Go over and visit How Sweet the Sound for more Pink Saturday goodness!
