PINK ESMERALDA

If Orange Esmeralda was not Orange Esmeralda she would be Pink Esmeralda.





When a previous theme was "Orange" she was clearly extremely happy, and now with "Pink" as this week's "Take a Word" theme, she is Super-Happy again and wants to make everything Pink.

We took a blue flower from the garden




and made a Pink digital painting.
Pink Esmeralda never travels far without her photo-editing equipment.







Then we took a flower design we had made



gave it some Pink colourways and made two little Pink notebooks.
There are five holes down the spine and each book is sewn together with embroidery thread.


This one is four by two and a half inches.





This is five by three and a half inches.







We hope that those of you who like Pink enjoyed our Pink art and that those of you who don't like Pink maybe like it a little bit better now?

I love the fact that Esmeralda is so happy, and the little books are absolutely divine. I can just imagine little girls loving these and the mums and aunts coveting them.
