Secret Garden Postcard 6 - Colouring Challenge

Another of the fiddly designs this week.

I started colouring the plants in this postcard first as I was really up for doing ‘sensible’ colours.  This changed to me wanting a pink, blue and yellow gazebo because why wouldn’t you?!
I do wish that I had coloured the background first in pencil or watercolour as I think it would have made the colours 'pop' a little more.  Which was probably why I then went a little overboard with the yellow.

Now that I’ve started planning my time and actually scheduling it out so there’s no excuses for not achieving I am finding these cards more relaxing (at last right?).  

Recently The Range opened in Bracknell and I’ve popped in there a couple of times checking out there arts/crafts section… And pretty much everything else in store! All the things I never knew I needed are waiting to be brought *Read ‘Emma WILL bankrupt herself in this store unsupervised.'

I managed to pick up a new colouring book for when I run out of postcards. I have been on the hunt for the ‘right’ book for a while now and this one is perfect for what I want.  For now I’ll tell you that it is the ‘100 Designs ZEN Colouring, The Ultimate Collection.’ and that they had a floral book in the same range there (so might pick that up soon too).  

Found it on Amazon for you all.
But for now it’s back to the postcards, sorry to tease!  I will say that if you are a fan of the adult colouring book trend then it’s well worth checking your local stores as The Range surprised me with how many of the colouring books it stocks.
