The Paper Shelter – Photo Inspiration

Good afternoon and here I am again, Wednesdays are a busy day for me lol. I am just loving being part of The Paper Shelter design team, I have found a new pleasure from my colouring again which is so nice. The images lend themselves to bright colours so easily.

We have a photo inspiration for you this week so please pop over to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog to have a look and join in.

I had a hunt through my papers to see what I could use for the colour scheme I had in mind and found these Basic Grey papers that I haven’t used in ages. I usually chose my papers first before colouring my image, I find it works better for me this way and I am also more likely to try different shades etc.

The image is another of this months new releases and is called Spring Swing II and can be purchased from The Paper Shelter. I really enjoyed colouring her. The edges have been coloured using eye shadow – I bought a palette with about 160 colours from eBay and use it instead of chalks to add a touch of colour.

All finished with my usual flowers and pearls …..and some feathers!!!!! I meant to say that the sentiment is a die cut from Craftwork Cards and I have had it for ages.
