When you make a conscious choice to be happy, no one can take it away from you because no one gave it to you: you gave it to yourself.

Saturated Canary Smash

Over recent months you can't help but have noticed my love of colouring - especially Saturated Canary images (and Some Odd Girl too) I've been creating pages in my Craft (black) Smash book of all my favourite crafty things.  

I've not been myself of late, not much real crafting going on, not anything to really shout about, but I have been colouring, always colouring. Some of it ends up in the bin, because I just can't make it work, but then sometimes I really surprise myself and it's so fab, well I think so, that I have to keep it, just for me, just to remind myself what I can do if I really put my mind to it. And so I finally finished my Saturated Canary page - 

Please note these aren't necessarily my favourites, they are just what I coloured and wanted to keep, I reckon I shall be making many more of these type of pages because there are too many fab images that I love to colour! 

Here's a close up of some of the characters -

Really pleased with this one - the red hair, the outfit, just love it!

Really pleased with the red skirt and blue tights - such a fab image to colour.

Red is always such a hard colour to work with but I've been practising lots!

I saw someone colour glasses with colour and thought I'd have a go. I added glossy accents to finish.

So there you go - more of my colouring!

Take care everyone - I'm slowly getting to your blogs more, I am looking at your posts even if I'm not always commenting, they cheer me up seeing all of your amazing talents. I shall be back tomorrow with my latest Crafty Boots DT project.

Oh, oh, oh. I love these pages, they are gorgeous. Fabulous colouring Zo.

I love all the Saturated Canary images you have and you have inspired me to invest in a few of my own but you may have noticed that I have never used any. It is because my printer does not like them, it prints them with a noticeable shadow which makes your eyes go funny! LOL.

These images are really outstanding Zoe.
