Nikki Burnette's I love Books

Good evening and welcome to my post! Today I am sharing a colouring I have been slowly adding to over the past couple of weeks. I finally finished it about 11pm last night! I've had little time to finish this in one or two sittings, so it has taken me a while to do, but I finally got there.

I used the gorgeous I Love Books image from Nikki Burnette's Spellbinding Images Colouring Book Volume 3 and printed it to roughly an A5 sized image.

I went with traditional Halowe'en colours of purple, green, orange and black and then got stuck on what to do for the background, so went with some purply-grey clouds, which didn't come out quite as blended as I had hoped for, but in real life, they are not quite as stark as in the photo!

Not sure if you can see it either, but the sentiment is covered with clear star gelly roll pen for a touch of glitter too!

At the minute I'm not sure what I am going to do with this colouring, so have just mounted it onto some card, but I might frame it and add it to my wall!
