Hi My Peeps!
There has been much buzz about shadowing techniques on the web these past two weeks. Lets take a look at two techniques that have been the most talked about.
I used the middle little girl from the Summer Breeze collection from Scrapper's Delights. You can look at them here.

The first technique is the Blue Outline technique. Its very easy to do. Before you color in your image you will outline it with a very light blue marker, water color or colored pencils. I used my B000 marker from Copic.

On the second image I did used the Dot Shadow technique. All you do is simply make dots around the image after you have colored her in. The mistake I made on this image is I put down the dots before I chose my paper.  I should have stuck with just the blue, yellow and green. Once I had both images trimmed down and matted. I used them to make cards. Check them out and give these two techniques a try. I will be using both of them quite a bit, I think.
Its a beautiful day here in California and I am going to take myself outside and get some sun.
You all have a great Friday and an awesome weekend.
