I printed the image out onto blue Canson Mi-Tientes paper and colored her with my Prismacolor colored pencils. I wanted to try adding knitted texture to the girl’s cap and took some help from Annabel Haines’ blog post called How I colour knitting texture. I was very happy with the result. I colored the rest of the girl, adding some earth detail to the sphere that she is standing on. I added a white stripe down the two sides and a light blue stripe down the middle of the background, but did not lose the tooth of the textured paper to provide a contrast to the smoothness of the coloring on the girl. I then cut my image out with a stitched tag die.
