3. Technique tricks:
*Coloring page was cut into sections with an upper stars section used for background behind the inside panel sentiment "new year wishes" and most of the lower section trimmed for a large front panel focal.
*Star was colored in yellow (to resemble gold) in order for that word to stand out.
*The mountains in the image were shaded lightly using a black colored pencil.
