Colorista Blog Hop Uk launch


I'm back!! This time it's the turn of the U.K. launch of the Colorista range and what better to celebrate than with another blog hop along with a fab competition...I'll give more info at the end of the post :0) You will of just hopped to me from the lovely Jo's blog.

Here are all the show details...and if you are unable to watch on TV you can watch online or catch up later on the Hochanda

There are more details and also a watch party HERE






Also thanks to everyone who stopped by and left some lovely my last post, I truly appreciate all the lovely comments that were left.

Today I thought I would share something a little different with you and give you all an idea of what to do with your larger finished coloured pages.

So for both of these projects I used the A4 Eastern Paradise pad. I just love these mandala patterns and could sit and colour them for hours...I did sit and colour them for hours! :0)

I took a couple of bare wooden trays and painted them both with white gesso to start with. I then used a good wet glue (collall tacky glue) and stuck the pages to the base of the trays. To finish and protect the pages I added a layer of modpodge.










So so simple to make but amazing when finished! I have decided I will be making more for Christmas gifts and using the trays instead of my usual hampers. I can colour the pages to suit whom I gifting them too :0)

















You are still able to sign up to the online course here is the link to it...definitely worth signing up to, if you haven't all ready!! HERE

As I mentioned at the beginning of the post there is also a competition...whoop! And to be in with a chance of winning all you need to do is leave me a comment and i will randomly pick a winner!..you will be given the chance to win on all the the blogs you hop along to :0)

The hop starts on the 2nd September at 12pm BST and finishes on the September 9th 11:59am BST. (US: 7am ET)

The winner picked from my blog will win a lucky dip prize of either pens, pencils, card making kit or paper pads.

There will also be one lucky random winner picked from the comments left on all the blogs...and this overall winner will win all 4 of the items listed above and Sara will announce the winner live on the 8pm launch show!

So from me you need to hop on over to Lori

Good luck to each and everyone of you who leaves a comment and thank you so much for stopping by :0)

Hugs

  20. I LOVE your colouring - so bright and cheerful and soooo detailed. I think making them as presents is a great idea - they'd be the most expensive presents if you converted the hours spent colouring into an £ hourly rate so they'd be for very special people.
    Thanks for sharing
