A few days back, I wrote about the adult coloring book I purchased at Publix. I decided my first project would be this palm tree.
I first began the project by putting the coloring page under a sheet protector. I built the trunk, the coconuts, and a few of the fronds on top of the actual page. As if I were tracing it. This wasn’t too hard, but once I got the hang of what I was doing…. I went rogue.
Truth be told, I received a few new tools in the mail and I was eager to give them a try. My final tree is not much like the coloring page, but that is ok. I really wanted to use them for inspiration anyway. Plus, once I deviated… I felt a little more freedom. I added two additional coconuts to the top, giving it some height and dimension. I also added the coconut at the base.
Now, I think I would like to work on taking this and creating an actual beach scene around it. Some water in the background, beach in the foreground. Perhaps a sun in the sky, and even some small items on the shore. We’ll see.
