Believe in Pink! Audrey Hepburn did 😉

Today I wanted to give you a completely free workshop called “Believe in Pink”!
The inspiration came from one of Audrey Hepburn’s awesome quotes (she has many!) that reads:

“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. 
I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. 
I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong.
I believe that happy girls are the pretties girls.
I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”

I find this quote so honest, feminine and vulnerable. Its simplicity and truth is what really appeals to me here!
It’s such a beautiful quote that I wanted it to be my main focal element, with nothing else distracting from the words.

So… Follow me in this new mixed media workshop where I show you step by step how I put this quote center stage!

Adapt the ideas and techniques to the length of the words that inspire you and your favourite colours/supplies and…
Show me what you created by posting a photo in the private Facebook support group here!

I ended up adding more to my painting (see below) than what I showed in the workshop as I wanted to give you a simple way to start and use a quote/poem as your main focal element. After that, it’s up to you to decorate even further if you wish!
