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
All in all, sometimes ya win and sometimes ya don't. LOL Hopefully these samples will still provided you with some inspiration and good luck with your projects this month in the Make it Colourful challenges! Cheers
