So let's see what the team have made this week! ....


Nikky...hmm I've completely forgotten to write down the colours I used on this image but I had fun with a lot of the ones in my tin LOL! I know it's the aqua blues and Wine, magenta and the strong pinks, I had a lot of fun! I wanted to create a background effect for this too - she's not a Christmas Fairy at all but just by adding the baubles in the background she is transformed froma  vampire fairy to a Xmas Angel I think. You can get the image here which is Oddella Fairy
To make the baubles and the background I just gently coloured some circles and built in shadow and highlights then used (I think) yellow ochre for the fairy lights, together with my Graph'It Shake white marker....

Scatty Jan, I used one of the wonderful colouring pages from Colour Therapy 2 - Inspiring Foilage that you can find here, popped onto one of the fabulous calendar pages
Colours used
Venetian Red, Indian Red, Cinnamon
Medium Grey, Dark Grey, light warm grey


Cara - I also chose to use an image from the Colour Therapy 2 collection  . I turned my image into a lovely calendar!
I was in such a rush to colour this up I completely forgot to note down my colours but I can tell you I used almost all of the colours in my tin!

Jane – Hello!  So I have also decided to showcase one of Nikky’s amazing Colour Therapy designs and I have chosen to use a page from COLOUR THERAPY CLUB - MONTH 1.
I think this shows that you do not have to colour the complete design if you find this a little daunting.  By using dies to spotlight on area and leave another blank I have not had to colour the entire page!!  And saved myself a bit of time! J
Colours used:
            Blues: 58, 55, 54
            Pinks: 33, 93, 35
            Yellows: 87, 83, 85
            Black: 99, 97
