#40 Mary Lou of Mary Lou’s Corner
Congratulations Mary Lou!! Contact me with your name, email and mailing address and I’ll get the package sent off to and on its way!
My project is another coloring sample for our challenge at Make it Colourful and our challenge was to color snow. Don’t worry – I plan to put this on a journal page and show it off next week. For the snow I used the Neutral tones for the majority of it but around lamp post I used Y23 and Y21 for a glow. However, mixed up the glow in the lamp post and should have reversed the dark and light parts – but that’s no biggie.
The trees were a little tricky but I started with the darkest color and tried to leave plenty of uncolored portions for the snow. I also went in with a white Gel pen afterwards for touchups and snowflakes too.
The main character is Bobo Petal Sprite from Make it Crafty and I used several of the new winter elements that were just released… Festive Elements, Winter Objects and Winter Scene Elements. Even though I was coloring a winter scene I still wanted a lot of color and I liked how it turned out. However, after looking at the other DT sample I think I’m going to add some more color and maybe some blue in the snow as well. ;D
