Topic: Hymnal Art
The hymnal art for today is on the Christmas Carol 'Joy to the World'. With all of the Christmas Story art that I have been doing in this hymnal I could not think of something different in that vein so I went with jingle bells.
I started out on scrap paper drawing a bell from memory but it did not look quite right so THEN I looked up a reference photo and made a few corrections from that. I had it 'almost' right but my X cuts were not deep enough on the ball. I bet those original bells would not have even rung!
Once I got the style right, I added three of them to the hymnal page along with some ribbon to hold them all together.
When it got to coloring, I grabbed some metallic paint pens in gold, silver and green for the bells and in red for the ribbons.
You can faintly see where I aded matching glitter gel pen for the highlights.
The JOY is round stickers.
