Pink Warrior: MMM challenge

Pink Warrior

This is my entry for Mixed Media Monday’s challenge this week, “It’s Not All Black and White”. There are always wonderful entries, take time to check them out!

This is a picture of my kid, when she was around 5. I tried to keep her in pink and girly colors but she wore me down; finally when she was about 8 she got her first pair of black jeans, wow! This is a photocopied picture of her, a little fuzzy but we didn’t have digital cameras way back when. I painted a cardboard wrapper with acrylic paints and detailed these with ink pen. I added in a few cool geegaws cause I thought they were fun. I added in a little ribbon that was left over from the bracelet I made her that is shown below.

My kid is a Pink Warrior because she is walking for me and people like me who have seen the dark side of cancer, and come back with the help of loved ones. She will be participating in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for the Cure in November, if you would like to donate money towards her entry fee click here.

We are so very proud of her, can you tell? Christen
