She comes in colors

Guess what?  We're building a rainbow and you can help!
The ever-inspiring Tammy at Daisy Yellow is building a rainbow with five days of color. 
Today is day one and the color is red or pink.

I rarely work in these colors, but was up for the challenge.  I intended to create something red, but a funny thing happens when you combine your red paint with white gesso....
So here's my pink piece for today.  It includes just two of the many kinds of washi tape I got for my birthday from my lovely, lovely sister.
It also includes a picture I took of my favorite day lilies in my garden.

Now go make something red or pink,   and add your linky love at Daisy Yellow!


  1. Loved your "a funny thing happens" that turned red into pink for today's collage. Thank you for your efforts in our huge project to build a rainbow in 5 days!

  2. Love it Karen; red is a difficult color to get just so.....

  3. A great addition to the challenge!! I love the focus on that patterned background. It is nice to step out of your comfort zone once in a while.

  4. Pink is just Diet Red....heehee ;P

    Love your piece! That daylily is a gorgeous shade!
