Wow! The last number of weeks has been hectic but fabulous too! Every ‘spare’ minute I have been working on creating these colouring tutorials and I have to admit that I was just so nervous about releasing the first one.
It took me so long to finally decide to go ahead with the colouring tutorials as truth be told, I was worried that having offered a lot of my thoughts and ideas on colouring over the last couple of years that you may think I was being ‘cheeky’ to ask you to pay for more of my thoughts and ideas! But, as you can imagine, these tutorials take me a long time to write, the thought process, what will work well together, the colouring, photos, how to explain it so you can understand without me sitting there… And I just hoped you would find that of value. And… from the feedback I have received, you have encouraged me to continue and document more of my ideas on colouring our favourite little characters! Thank you!!
I am excited to be releasing another colouring tutorial on my absolute favourite topic… HAIR!! But not any style of hair… This time I have jumped right in to show you how I achieve beautiful detailed hair with fine flicks and lots of depth.
I share a little technique I made up to try and show you what goes on in my head then I take you through the process of building hair. I will tell you upfront… this is not an easy process. It takes time, patience and practise but if you can get the basics and grab the concept then practise will make you perfect!
Now there’s something extra special about this tutorial. I needed a special image that was going to test your boundaries. Something that I could show you how to break up sections of hair, create depth and highlights as well as being full of body so you can experience creating the texture of hair with ‘space’. I knew the perfect style of image would be by Krista Smith of Saturated Canary. When I contacted Krista and told her my plan I was thrilled when she suggested she could illustrate and donate the image for the tutorial! How amazing is that?! And then… my mouth dropped when she sent through the image. She was just PERFECT for this tutorial!! And I had to laugh, when krista said… and in case you want to know – her name is Zoe! haha Seriously, I thought, people are going to start thinking I have a big head naming all these characters after myself!! I didn’t this time!! promise!! haha
Krista sweetie – Thank you so much for sharing the PERFECT image for this tutorial!! Big Squeezes!!

My gorgeous DT girls are amazing!! They are just so supportive and I love them so much!
