On to my post. The new Make it Colourful Challenge started today and there is something different starting this month. No more "easy challenge". Nope. As Zoe says, you've got to put on your big girl panties and go for the hard challenge! It may seem scary at first, but there are lots of resources for the challenge provided on the blog and also lots of inspiration from the team. We sure hope you will give it a go!
This month's challenge is "atmospheric perspective". I won't go into the details of what that means because there are several great videos and examples on the blog, but briefly, atmospheric perspective refers to the hazy look of objects that are off in the distance. Far away objects tend to fade, lose their detail and become "cooler" in color. This is the effect we were going for. Definitely not an easy task, I can tell you!
Here is my project:
I started with the Hidden Forest Digi Stamp from Make it Crafty for my scene. I lightened the lines in the far background using the technique Zoe shared in the Make it Crafty FB group. I wanted those trees to appear hazy and far in the distance compared to the warmer colors and finer details in the foreground. Everything was colored with my Copics. I then colored up Miss Hood, also from Make it Crafty, in vibrant colors and popped her right in front in the scene.
I hope I at least came close to achieving the effect. It was definitely a big challenge for me! Head on over and check out the fabulous projects from the rest of the team! We hope you'll join in on the August Make it Colourful challenge! You have a whole month to enter and all the details are on the blog. We can't wait to see your atmospheric perspective projects!
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
