Paper cones are such a fun decoration, especially during the holidays. This one went together quite quickly, too, once my Lockhart image was colored. I simply used some text-weight silver shimmer paper that I picked up at Paper Source to wrap around the base, then added some lace and pom pom trim. (I used Glue Arts Ribbon Adhesive on this - I wanted to make sure that the lace stuck to the shimmer paper and that the pom pom trim stuck to the lace. This adhesive was the perfect choice!) See what I mean - it went together pretty quickly!
So last week on this post, I alluded to coloring a certain way and layering color. I thought this Snow Tree with Birds image was a great one to show you more specifically what I was talking about. (All colors are Prismacolor pencils unless otherwise noted.)
First, I start with a light layer:
Then choose analogous colors in a slightly darker shade, but be sure to leave some of the light layer coming through as highlights:
Then finish off with your third layer, pulling in either a darker color for shadows or the 'finishing touch':
I hope that you find this helpful for your own coloring! I think if you give it a try with your own images, you will be really pleased with the results. Be well!
