Happy Pink Saturday Pat Sweetie...
What a beautiful share today. I have so enjoyed my visit. I love seeing your creations, and this aluminum foil stained with the alcohol ink, I love that one, it appears to be a sun. SO glorious in color. I love it.

I also loved the acrylic paint monoprint, as I adore red. It is one of my favorite colors of all. So vibrant and alive.

Thank you for sharing sweet friend. Have a beautiful Pink Saturday and a safe and glorious 4th of July. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Holly said...

These are so cool! So, how did you do the aluminum foil and Krylon paint on webbing? Inquiring minds want to know! You need to be teaching if you aren't already!
Have a wonderful 4th.
