Let's Get Started with Pale Pink!

Soft pinks are restrained, requiring a light hand and the ability to hold yourself back from dipping your #10 brush in the mangenta too many times. It requires a bit of dilution. A bit of grey or black or blue to calm down. A bit of desaturation. Restraint. This is incredibly hard for me!

SALMON!

{our color hostess today is Jazmin! What fun is in store for you at the intro to SALMON (the color, not the fish, at Syrens Idyll?}

the background is stamped with eraser stamps my daughter and i made this week, and then smeared with color using little cats eye stamp pads {aimee of artsyville created this cool way of doing backgrounds with stamping ink, see the tutorial at artsyville}
