Mushroom Forest

The crazy challenge at Make it Colourful this month is all about an atmosphere perspective... meaning to show the depth of the picture as it fades back into the distance.  Zoe provided with a description, samples and design team inspiration that you can read all about it.  For me, I started with the Mushroom Forest from Make it Crafty and then tried to figure out what I was doing.  LOL


I used the forest example, from the challenge post, and tried to mimic the color of the trees.  Using the back part as the most lightest then coming forward to a darker gray.  But then at the foreground I started to make the mushrooms lighter.  I was using all gray colors knowing that I was going to go back in and use colors.


When I add the colors, I used the most in the foreground and then faded out to not using any at all in the background.  This way I was able to keep the gray colors showing in the background.


Here's what the image looked like after I had used the Copic markers on it.


I was happy with how the colors turned out but I'm not too happy with how the Prismacolor pencils and the Copic markers blended ... or rather...  not blended together. I think it was the paper I was using but the next time I think I'll stick with one or the other.


Finally I placed my project on a journal page and decorated it.  Thanks for coming by and I hope this helps you in your trial for the challenge this month!  :D
