Hello Creatives..... Happy Hump Day.Also Happy New Year to you-!!
Today- I have a journal tutorial using Koi Watercolors and Pitt pens. This is an easy way to get color onto a page. And if you can draw circles you can do this.
Sometimes I want to doodle just as I am out of bed, first thing in the morning. Yet- I am just wanting to get my hand and brain into drawing. This is a great creative exercise to get things going without a whole lot of thought.
Here is what you will need:
- Koi Water colors 24-Color Set
- Strathmore Visual Journal - Mixed Media 5.5"x8"
- Faber-Castell Pitt Pen: Artist Four-Pen Set
- Uniball Signo Gel Pens White
- Paper Trimmer
- Black Card Stock
- Corner punch
Step 1: Using the water brush in the Koi kit add some color onto the journal page. I like to have some white spaces in my water colors, I call this sparkle. Don't forget your sparkle.
Step 2: Use the white pen and add circles in area. Then use Pitt Pens and do the same.
Step 3: Trim off the frayed paper edge.
Step 4: Practice the lettering that you would like to use. The sentiment that I chose to use was, "She turned her can'ts into cans, and her dreams into plans..."
Step 5: Draw lines and spacing to the side of journal page in pencil. Draw sentiment in pencil then trace in Pitt pens, erase the pencil lines.
Step 6: Cut black card stock 1/4" larger than your journal page, corner punch both journal page and black card stock.
Step 7: Adhere the journal page to the black card stock, then adhere inside your journal.
My wish to you for the New Year is that you will take the time to Dwell on your Dreams.
