So I really wanted some pink sheet music and some pink recipes. My method of dyeing these sheets pink:
I used the remaining beet juice from the can of beets I opened to eat. I have been wanting to use this beautiful dark burgundy juice for a really long time...maybe years. I love to eat the beets but only if they ARE NOT pickled. I put the liquid into a cookie sheet tray and then drenched the sheet music and recipe pages one at a time. Some of them I tore, some of them I crumpled and some of them I left perfectly smooth. After dripping them off into the utility sink I hung them on clothes pin hangers to dry. Hmmm...a really lovely pink hue on each of the papers. I was so happy.
Here is a card I made with some of the pink dyed music paper. The floral heart and envelope liner are some of my vintage wrapping paper. I added a piece of vintage soft pink lace to the corner of the card.
What would you do with some pink sheet music or recipe pages?
Now I am anxious to use more colors that maybe come from Easter Egg dyes or food coloring kits. Green, blue, yellow, red/pink for the primary colors. Then a mixture of colors to make more exotic hues of the rainbow. The possibilities are endless.
My head is just full of ideas. Need time to create...need time...need to create...time...create...
What are you making in your studio this week?
