So I definitely DO NOT need another hobby as life is crazy and busy enough as it is! But I will admit to getting in on the adult colouring phase. I mean, it's just so, so relaxing to colour! But of course, I can combine my love of scrapbooking with the fun of colouring! Enter: Oh Happy Life collection by Amy Tangerine. Seriously good BUT there are several patterned papers that are printed in black and white and are PERFECT for colouring!
So I chose a pattern that I liked and then grabbed some colouring pencils (I like the Prismacolor pencils - nice, saturated colour and they blend beautifully!) and got to colouring! I put on some Grey's Anatomy and just happily resided in my creative zone!
When I got about halfway down the page, I was happy and decided to stop there and create a layout! I chose a happy selfie of my kids and their older cousins and kept it bright and fun!
I kept to my usual style of lots of layers, machine stitching, mist splatters and fun embellishments! I love the result!
So be on the lookout for this collection and grab some of the black and white printed patterned paper! Unleash your inner child and have fun colouring!
PS: You can totally find me on the American Crafts blog from time to time now as I'm honoured to have joined the design team!
