Nautical Inspiration

I love nautical themes~always have!

So this photo/sketch was on my mind when I perused a local scrapbook store.

Is it no wonder I brought this lovely "color me!" stamp home?
I was determined not to be intimidated by her size...refusing to back away from "What if I screw up her outfit after all this coloring???" nonsense.
I figured if I started with her hair and skin, I could paper piece the outfit if need be.
 It didn't come to that, but I had to explain myself when asked "What are you doing?" and I answered with "coloring".


The looks on their faces!! ;) was a stretch for me, yet very relaxing~yay!!!
Thanks for stopping in~
