A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

Saturated Canary - Reader

Good Morning Everyone! 

Today I'd like to share with you all another adorable image from Saturated Canary called Reader.
She is just so beautiful and I had a lot of fun colouring her up and creating a little background for her!  I'm still getting to know my Distress Inks and so, I know the colouring isn't perfect, but I'm pretty pleased with the overall effect :)

I just love the soft feel these DI's achieve and used embellishments to compliment both the image and colours.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the little rolled flower is from The Ribbon Girl and the beautiful Shabby Pearl Rose Organza Trim if from Live & Love Crafts.  The lace was a bargain from Ebay any the little pom pom trim I bought from my local craft shop.  

I decided to create a little book shelf to complete the look - a little fiddly to be honest, but I wasn't going to be beaten!  I folded papers here and there to make the 'books' and 'pages', then added a little 'shelf' made from paper to which i added metal embellishments to the edges.

I typed the sentiment onto Kraft cardstock and distressed the edges.  Thought it was quite apt for the overall theme :)
