Make It Crafty Blog Hop

What do you think of this image by Saturated Canary?  See her lovely hair?  I used B91 95 97 and 99 for her hair.  Her dress is E31 35 57 and 79.  Skin is my normal E50 51 and 93 for cheeks.  Added BV20 for face shadows.





Zoe's excited to be releasing another colouring tutorial and it is on a topic that everyone always seems to want to improve... Colouring Hair!! And in particular this e-book is, 'Colouring long hair in fine detail!'
Colouring Long Hair Tutorial
When Zoe was trying to decide on an image that would be perfect for this tutorial she just knew she had to contact the gorgeous Krista Smith from Saturated Canary. And... Excitingly Krista has illustrated and generously donated the perfect character exploding with big luscious hair full of layers and bumps! Just perfect for you to learn all of Zoe's little secrets to colouring finely detailed hair.
We thought it would be fun to have a little hop (and a few give aways of course) where the fabulous MiC girls and Krista have followed Zoe's tips and tricks to colouring long straight hair.  Here is the hop list.  be sure and leave some love
