As you can see the color is intense and leans towards the blue side of hot pink.
The wedding this rose is used in has a very bright palette but also a soft side using sweet pale peach spray roses for the wristlets.
One more stunning spray rose that came in this week and used for designing is here: Brilliant Stars
In my opinion this is a stand alone rose, in other words nothing more is needed to make it look any prettier. It has the soft ruffle edge with a hint of green, and finished off with the pink center. A bride could just order a bunch, wrap them with a bow and viola!
To change the focus, but still in the creative realm, I am sharing my Paint Party Friday favorite for the week.
My sketchbook work is coming along, and providing so many opportunities to work quickly as well as having fun doing it! For this days work I chose a trip out to the garden to pull up some heirloom radishes. They were so pretty in shape and color.
Each day this week I've done a quick sketch. The 30 Challenge is a challenge in finishing one page a day! The other gals that are participating have agreed that we don't have to have them all painted but just to work on them as we can over this month. The 30 Day Challenge is a result of a class taken from Leslie Fehling.
I find that having a goal helps me progress and keeps me motivated. How about you?
Happy Friday, Happy weekend, and Happy Day!
