Experimenting With Toned Paper

Hello Citizens of the Blogosphere,

I love trying new things, especially when it comes to creation!

 Today I come to you with an experiment on toned paper.

Here’s what I did to create this effect:

The original illustrations were done on white paper and then copied onto craft paper cardstock.

You can buy this paper at most crafting or scrapbooking stores.

I bought the paper I used for this project at Michael’s.  

After I transferred the drawings to toned paper, I colored them using Prismacolor Soft Core colored pencils.

Tips:

Using soft colored pencils gives your piece a bold look.

Using bright colors helps to increase the contrast

I love the look of bold/bright colors on toned paper!

Have you seen my street-chalk art style colored pencil drawings I created earlier this year?

If you are interested, you can check them out by clicking on the picture below.

The effect was created using bright colors on black cardstock.
