Hot hot hot...

Hello lovely people,

Well hello there weekend!  It's going to be a busy one as Dr Hubby and I are looking after our niece and nephew to give their parents a bit of a break.   So, we have activities planned, including crafty ones of course, and the house is stocked with cake, chocolate and ice cream as bribes ;-)

Firstly though there is the little matter of a new challenge at Totally Gorjuss and this week the theme is...
Hot Colours
I did groan a little at this one as it's a bit out of my comfort zone but that's what a challenge is all about isn't it?!
This Saturated Canary image immediately sprang to mind though and I hope this is hot enough for you...


This is the first time I have coloured up this gorgeous image and I really enjoyed it :-)  I had my colour advisor (AKA my Mum) with me and she was most helpful!

Thank you so much Gail for your lovely comments and it might be a while, but when I get time I will do a hair colouring tutorial. I am well aware there are far better colourists out there than me but I would be delighted to share anything I know!
