I know it's been a while, but it's been a big roller coaster of emotions the last few months, as I made the final decision to close the shop. It is currently being wound down and now that I have accepted a full time job working for the NHS Shared Business Services, I only get up there on a Saturday.
Still, the show must go on and my job will once again become my hobby, which means I can just sit and play because I want to, not because i have to (at least that's the positive spin I'm putting on it!!)
So, to cheer myself up, I popped round to Peppa's house for a spot of colouring. We decided to play with one of the Gorjuss stamps. I've been promising myself for ages that I would experiment with my colours more to find the perfect Brunette, Blonde and Dark hairs, so this is what I came up with:
Black, Cool Grey 5,4,3,2,1
Umber, Burnt Umber, Cocoa, Cinnamon, Sandstone
To colour these two pictures took us about 2 hours, but that was mainly due to being undecided if we liked the end result or not. I made a start on a blonde, but have only coloured the hair so far, so it's always harder to tell if it's right without the skin being complete, but I'll show you anyway.....
Raw Sienna, Sandstone, Pastel Yellow, Vanilla, Ivory
I love all of them and am happy I now have a starting point for each colour hair. I'm sure I will play some more and develop this further, but for now, this will do!!
