Girls just wanna have fun...

Hi friends!

Today I've got something kinda different to share. After a week of coloring cute, simpler images I was itchin' to shake things up and go with a more realistic looking image that would really stretch and challenge me. This sassy gal totally fit the bill but surprise, surprise... she isn't from a traditional digi shop. Not only do I enjoy following fellow paper crafters on Instagram but I also follow quite a few artists that I admire as well. So when Ana Marija (madebyinkyjar) shared this coloring page on Patreon I couldn't wait to print her off and start coloring. I was getting a strong SoCal kind of vibe from this stylin' cutie so I Googled 'L.A. sunset' to find inspiration for the background. This beach boardwalk scene was the perfect home for my high ponytailed, pretty in pink, girlie girl because I can just imagine her waiting for the sun to go down after a day at the beach only to find some entertaining and hip night spot to party at long into the night. If you can't tell I really got lost in the storytelling with this one... probably because I would love to break up the monotony of these semi-quarantine days with some fun of my own, LOL! Ah well, a girl can always live vicariously through her cards, right?  ;)

Later gators!
