Paint Party Friday & SOC...Charcoal Gray and Pale Pink!



Welcome to Week 4 of Summer of Color! This week's color combo is Charcoal Gray and Pale Pink...love love love this color combo!!! I made another canvas from Megan Suarez's Whimsical Girls Workshop just for this week's color combo. This is a 6x6 chunky canvas with collage, acrylic paints, Copic markers, inks, pens and pencil. I love drawing these big eyed whimsical girls!

I'll also be linking to Paint Party Friday later in the week!

Thanks so much for visiting and be sure to visit Summer of Color to see all the rest of the fabulous artists! xo

I whimped out and used strong pink rather than pale pink as the colour scares me half to death but then I see your lovely use of it and feel as though I should have given it a go... wonderful... happy week 4
