Black, Blue, and a Pretty Red Shoe!

I'm so excited about these swatches.  This is why I color.  I don't know where my coloring journey will take me, but I'm having fun just coloring things.  Faces, hair, and other girly things are my favs, so I'm thinking it may be an extension of my days of playing with dolls.  Plus, it's both soothing and relaxing. 

So, here's to black and blue.  This is how I've learned through coloring swatches is the easiest way for me to achieve blue-black hair.  I color as I would for black hair, and then go over it with a blue (True Blue) marker.  This is one of the lovely ladies from Sassy Studio Designs, and I colored her with Promarkers.



 Some kind of wonderful!
Done with the black and the blue.  On to the pretty red shoe.

Not a woman in the world that wouldn't want to wear this shoe.  The shoe is fabulous.  The coloring is fabulous.  It took lots of practice, and I nailed it.  I'm happy, happy, happy. 
As always --
