Batty Princess

We have a fantastic new challenge for you this week at Make it Colourful and it's certainly and challenging challenge! We want to see Coloring Mist on your project!! But the good news is you can use any medium you want as long as your coloring. :D So get out your markers, paints, pencils, and anything else you can find, and come join us this week!

For my project I created mist on the Spooky Graveyard from Make it Crafty and I found Batty Princess from Kraftin' Kimmy from my stash to pare up with it. I thought she would be perfect walking out of that graveyard so princess like!

The mist was a little difficult to start on but I followed a few tips from Delphine and jumped right in. First I Googled "morning mist" then used T0 and T1 to lightly color in where I wanted the mist to be. Then I started building up the around those areas getting darker and darker with the Toner grays. Finally, I started added color and bringing out the elements.

The sky was colored with light circles going from T0 secquentally down to T6 with a little B91 and B93 mixed in with it. I colored Batty Princess with blacks as well keeping with the theme but enjoyed giving her green eyes and red hair. The red hair mixture is from Annika and I think it's my new favorite combination - D59, E19, E08, and YR14.

Most of the color comes from the paper and I had to cut, tape, rearrange and glue to get it to fit but I'm happy with how it turned out. The border paper was 6x6 and I had to get it to fit around the 5x8 paper.... so no peeking under the graveyard image!! LOL Finally I added a small tag and some silver flowers to finish it off. I loved how it turned out and hope it gives you some ideas.
