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.

Finding the new Black!


It's time to share my latest Graph It  DT make - pop over to the blog to see the rest of the inspiration and find out about the challenge and join in!!

Don't forget we have a fabulous group on Facebook where we hang out, share our makes and the DT will happily answer any questions you may have.

So greys - people often forget how useful these are. I use them all the time.

I love the different greys you can get in the Graph It range, Green grey is fabulous for shading, backgrounds and, for me, it shouted school uniform!! So I coloured up this Some Odd Girl digi. I used the green greys to colour her skirt, bag, hair band and eyes. I also used them to create the soft dotted background. Combined with warm bold colours the green greys can become the new black!!

I found the coordinating card, flowers and I coloured some white Candi to go in the flowers. I added Glossy Accents to her glasses too.

The Graph It's I used are -
Green Greys = 9201, 9203, 9205 & 9209
Skin = 4120, 4125, 4115, 4155, 3210, 4145, 4135 & 9503 (dark shadows)
Hair = 4170, 4175, 5215, 5220 & 6160

Here's some different angles - 

Look forward to seeing your creations.

I'm entering this into the following challenge - 
Take care Zo xx
