NOEL: Merry Christmas
My husband wants this on our wall– imagine the peaceful glow if this were real.
There’s a lot going on here besides the ornaments, lights, and pine boughs. I needed to add and extra bright glow on the lights. Usually there are two yellow layers and two white layers, all blurred a bit. But it just wasn’t bright enough so I added in another slightly blurred layer of light in yellow. That brightened it up.
Around the edges of the background, see the darkened shadows where the light lessons. And below the glass ornaments, more light shading. If you look in the ornaments, you’ll notice the shadow of the letters. And the bows are brighter on the lower parts and darker in the top curves of the bow.
I liked the way it turned out.
I created it in an ornament on Zazzle:
And, for the kids, an ornament color page.
