Here is the last jar for this week, using the Atlas Jar Coloring Tutorial posted earlier this week. On this project, I used the Atlas Jar clear set from Whimsy Stamps and used elements from the Polka Dot Pals Imogen set to fill it. What makes this jar unique is the color is different from the rest being a blue glass instead of gray. Also, added color to the sidewalls of the jar give this one a bit more character.
This is another jar I colored using the Atlas Jar Coloring Tutorial that was posted earlier this week. I’ve used the Atlas Jar clear set from Whimsy Stamps and the fox is an element from the Polka Dot Pals Raden set. What makes this one unique is that the coloring the jar goes all the way to the edges which means the glass walls aren’t extremely thick. Also, I used electronics on this one to make some fireflies appear – just push the little fox.
This jar was colored using the Atlas Jar Coloring Tutorial posted previously this week. I used the Atlas Jar clear set from Whimsy Stamps and filled it with elements from the Polka Dot Pals Atlas set. What makes this jar unique is the appearance of thick glass walls with variations in shading around it – plus the contents, of course.
This is one of the cards I created using the Atlas Jar Coloring Tutorial I posted earlier this week. I’ve used the Atlas Jar clear stamp from Whimsy Stamps. What makes this project unique is the red lid, tag and the “Atlas Mason” words also stamped on the jar.
I’ve been able to create a tutorial to share on how to color a jar. This tutorial uses the Atlas Jar from Whimsy Stamps plus a few more elements from the Polka Dot Pals line that fill the jars. This is the smaller of the two jars available at Whimsy Stamps, the other is Mason Jar and is large enough to fit a character inside.
There’s a lot of tips so you can get the CliffNotes version and look at the pictures or stick with me and read the unabridged version. I’ll be posting cards I’ve made with these on different days.
Important things to keep in mind – I found that the jar concept can be simplified, which is what I’m showing here, but this is just the beginning. I think that creating different shapes around the edges with shadows and highlights adds visual interest and makes each jar unique. Adding colors around the edges too also makes them fun. So once you get the concept down, be sure to experiment with each new jar that you color.
We have a special collaboration post today and coloring challenge to share. Special thanks to Ann from Stamp Anniething for sponsoring this event and to Denise from Whimsy Stamp for supplying the other images to make it complete.
A few of us got together to challenge ourselves in coloring and we hope this inspires you to join along too. The rules were basic… (1) use a Stamp Anniething character, (2) the jar from Atlas Jar, and (3) to incorporate coloring water using Creative Color Placement techniques. Then (4), I added a personal objective onto myself to see how a Polka Dot Pals add-on face would work on these characters.
Following are details on my project but also make sure to visit everyone else and see their amazing projects. Everyone’s project is unique and totally fantastic!!
