Mixed Media Monday - Least Favourite Colour

This week on Mixed Media Monday Beth is challenging us to use our least favourite colour in some way. While I don't really have a colour that I dislike, pink is something outside my comfort zone. I was therefore very suprised when I was digging through my stash to find just how much pink I actually have accumulated. Nothing in my painting supplies, though :-) This piece is done on a stretched canvas 8x10 inches or 20x25 cms, and is mostly fabric with a little textured paper and lots of embellishments. The square in the top left hand corner is Lutradur which I burnt out using a wood burning tool and the woman image was printed onto Lutradur as well. I have decided that when it comes to fabric art, pink is not going to be my least favourite colour.

It's strange. There are a lot of pink-haters in this week's challenge but the pink artwork on show is exquisite. Yours is superb!! Great work.
Happy New Year, Diane (40 forecast for Perth today accompanied by gale force hot easterly winds which feel like a blow-torch).
