MarkerPop - Tuesday Tips and Tricks

Hi everyone, I'm back again for my third post today.  I can hardly believe that I've managed to get three posts into one day.  Thanks goodness for winter break or I don't think I could have done it.  This time I am bringing you a post using products from Marker Pop and a "tip" I posted on the Marker Pop blog today.  This tip involves shading an image and how I go about putting my shadows and highlights in my image.  I have a very difficult time "seeing" from which direction the light is hitting an image.  No matter how I try I just can't seem to see the shadows in their entirety when I begin coloring.  In order to put shadows in my coloring I start with a small part of the image at a time.  I find where the shadows are obvious and then I begin coloring there.

In this case I was coloring a Magnolia image, Tilda with Peanut.  Her head is tilted so I could tell where I should place the shadows, so I began there.

From here I went to the hair, which always has so many shadows and highlights.  When I color the hair I always color a small section at a time so I can see where each shadow lies.

Then each section kind of falls together and the finished product is what I have.

After that the image gets put onto my project and here is what I came up with this time.  I was bored with my normal square card, looking for something different and this card is what I came up with.  It was a lot of experimenting, looking for inspiration and playing around with some fun new products.

Materials I Used on My Project:
Wild Orchid Flowers
MS Frond Punch
Spellbinder's dies
Metal Flower Embellishment

Well, that's it for me today.
Thanks so much for stopping by,
