Some books I have read

Starting last September thought I would take a picture of each of the books I read just to keep track of them & to see just how much I did read. So here are some of them. I got these from the Library too.
Fade - Lisa McMann, Flash Forward - Robert J Sawyer, The Infernal - Kim Wilkins
I loved them all for very different reasons.

Ombre - Graduated Colour

Ombre is a massive colour/style trend at the moment, whether it be hair colour, cakes, nails even homewares.
You see this colour graduation in nature all the time, my favorite is the way hydrangeas fade from dark to light.
I really think flowers do it best. Oh & sunsets they do it really well too, I guess sunrises too but I don't do  mornings very often, so I'll let you be the judge of that.
There are some awesome tutorials on the web that show you how to achieve this effect.
