Today’s challenge at Mixed Media Monday is “Your least favorite color.” It was hard to chose a color I didn’t like until I realized I was focusing on major color grouping where I can always find a shade/tone that I do like. I don’t mind pink, many times it is just the color that is needed, but don’t use it as a main color, and I especially don’t like to work with pinks in sweet candy-like ways. I like a grungy-er look. So, I made the effort to do sweet pink.
The background was one I’d already done in a journal made with scraped acrylic paint, stamps, large bubble wrap prints, etc. I used an old photo of myself wearing a tuxedo and changed it into a skirt. I added a penguin as it was the theme of the party I was originally dressed for. Can’t say I love it anymore…As I titled it…”I still hate pink”!
