Mosaic Monday: Winter Pinks



We got our first snow of the new year on Saturday. This is always a little bittersweet for me. Although I love how it looks, it always seems to emphasize how far away spring really is. I went back through my photo archives to pull out some pretty pink images, and have gathered them here for you. The mosaic is made from a web board which can be found on The CoffeeShop Blog, here. If you use Photoshop, this is a great resource. I placed my images, and then changed the color of the frames to better match my blog colors.

Here are the instructions to join today's post:
1. Publish your Mosaic Monday post. The post may be about any subject you wish. The only stipulation is that it include a collage, or mosaic of photos.
2. Once it is published, click on the title of the post. This will lead you to the static link for your post. The static link is the page with only that post on it. Copy the url from your browser at the top of the page.
3. Paste the url into the appropriate inlinkz box in this post.
4. Type your name in the appropriate inlinkz box in this post.
5. Click on "Enter."
6. Please link back to this Mosaic Monday post so that your readers can find other wonderful mosaics.
That's all there is to it! It's always a good idea to then check and see if your link is working. If you have any questions, feel free to email me: mrcarroll(at)optonline

And a quick reminder: if you would like to join Mosaic Monday but don't know quite where to start, there is a tutorial on mosaic-making on my sidebar. Just scroll down, and click on the small blue mosaic.

  3. Hello, Mary
    I like the format you used for your collage; thanks for sharing the source. There is an elegance to the overall look and the soft colours are soothing on a winter's night.

  7. I love your beautiful pink mosiac! I need to experiment with photoshop instead of always just using picasso. We also received our first snow. My mind was on Spring, gardens, and chicken coops this weekend too.

  14. Pretty in pink! seeing these lovely flowers has me longing for spring all the more. Warmer weather and pretty colors are a long time coming in this neck of the woods! Thanks for the link to that site. :-)

  16. These are gorgeous! Especially because when one thinks of winter they rarely think of 'pink.' But it's definitely out there! :)

  24. The Web Board is a good idea. I had seen them but just hadn't bothered to learn how to use them. You gave me the push to download and try it out. Maybe everyone will see my filled in web board next week!
