As you know there is a new challenge this month on the Make it Colourful blog and I wanted to share my projects that I made using the images I colored. I had the opportunity to take my Prismacolor Pencils with me on a weekend excursion. I normally don’t use the pencils very often since they’re more difficult for me to work with than the markers. Sometimes I like my results and sometimes I don’t. But as long as I keep trying then that’s my main goal. 🙂
For my first project I aimed for the basic challenge and wanted to use my reds and greens. I focused on the redish hair, red dress and greenery in the background. I think my favorite part is the face where I thought the colors blended in nicely. The rest is just “meh” because there is too much white showing through the pencils and as a result, I think I gave up half way through. However, with the image on the card it doesn’t look so bad and I think will still bring a smile to someone regardless.
The second project was just because I had time left over and I wanted to make up for the first one. Unfortunately, I feel the same about it so my efforts to cheer me up didn’t work. Ah well… that’ll all go away when I pick up my markers again. LOL
For this card, I attempted to add texture in the background. I had envisioned a background that would look like a blurry city scape in the dark, maybe on a bridge with the blue sky and stars – something we’d see in the movies. I’ll let you take a look at the result and decided how well I did. LOL
