Searching for Roy G Biv 4: PINK Update #5

Orchids in November morning light.

Welcome to the next installment of the Search for Roy G Biv (the colors of the rainbow). We are continuing beyond the rainbow this month with the color PINK. Here's what I found...

Fuzzy pink.
Healthy pinks
Pink Speedy Carve favorite brand to carve!
Poppy's purple and pink pup!

Once again, I'm surprised that PINK is a regular visitor to my creative exploits (well...mostly HOT PINK!).

Resist prints with leaves from Julie B Booth Surface Design News #30.
Tropical pinks using turnips and carrots printed for a Printed Fabric Bee Challenge.
Hot glue pinks...a technique being featured in one of my QATV segments next year.
Day of the Dead pinks (veggie prints and stencils) from my recent book signing in Frederick, MD

Hope you will join in the fun this month by posting up to five PINK photos on your blog and leaving a comment here or on Jennifer Coyne Qudeen's blog. I'll continue to update this post through Saturday. Be sure to check out the PINK entries below:

 Margaret at Charlton Stitcher has posted some "travelling PINKS". The last two photos are truly spectacular!

 Jennifer has found plenty of signs of PINK this month, both urban and suburban.

Fiona at Paper Ponderings has a wonderful quote about old books and a beautiful photo of one that she encountered in Japan with just a hint of PINK.

Roxanne Lasky posted some popping PINKS today...check them out!

Maya at Take Diversion has some very unexpected PINKS!

Susan and Elizabeth at PGFiber2Art have cheery PINKS this month.

Lisa at arzigogolare is thinking fondly of PINK with bouquets of peonies.

Sharmon Davidson has floral PINKS in every shade! I especially love those cone flowers.

Fran at At the End of the Day has poetic and powerful PINKS.

Mary Ann at Blue Sky Dreaming found family PINKS. I love the idea of the wedding scroll!

Linda Stokes has some artistic PINKS this month and some will be appearing in her "Gifted" show.

The final installment of Roy is December 17th and it is a Blogger's Choice. Hope you will join in next month...Jennifer and I are taking a break from Roy after that. It's been a great run!

  8. At first I thought pink seemed quite incongruous with fall, but it has brought a nice jolt of color to a string of gray November days - and I'm very much enjoying my "tour of pink" today! Your turnip & carrot fabric is just gorgeous, and I like the range of textures you've captured, from the velvety orchid to the fuzzy pink and those smooth stalks of chard...
