Guess what? It's time for a new challenge over at Designed to Color!! You heard right!!

I decided to create a SMASH* page using this neat sketch. I've kept the layout to the upper left portion of my page, it's pretty easy to spot. 

I've coloured Shy Mae from Some Odd Girl with ProMarkers and FlexMarkers in bright, happy colours.

Skin - Blush, Soft Peach, Rose Peach, Baby Pink, Lavender
Eyes - Leaf Green, Forest Green
Hair - Light Fawn, March Hare, Tan, Cinnamon
Eyelids & Shoes - Powder Blue, Cadet Blue, China Blue
Top - Amber, Pumpkin, Ginger, Spice
Skirt -  Meadow Green, Leaf Green, Apple.
I created some grass beneath her feet and added the more subtle blue glow around her. She's too sweet!!
Head over to the Designed to Color Blog NOW and see what other awesauce projects the contributors have whipped up to inspire ya!
