Shades of pink

While at KC collage camp last weekend,
this was the bedroom at the Clark Mansion
where I played out my dreams of being
a princess.

A Victorian dream with delightful detail.
PINK was throughout the rooms.
Whether on fabric or the real thing.
A bouquet of freshness
adorned the dining table.

The life of a princess...
being called to a beautiful lunch.
Called away from the next room where
we ripped fabric, glued and sewed
fabric collages. And also paper...
bird nest paper, bark, & cardboard.
This was my heart piece we made.
I really enjoyed using the heat gun
to age the fabric, but be careful...
too much heat--paper burns!
So I named my piece
Hearts on Fire
Another fun thing...
experimenting with all the different stitches.
Hearts on Fire with PINK
Pink Saturday
and
How Sweet the Sound
is where PINK hearts gather.

Hi Candy,
My first visit here and I love it.Am now a follower. I would have felt like a princess too in this room. Just beautiful.
I've never taken any of KC's classes but I've bought all her DVDs.
Happy Pink Saturday.
