Sometimes when I cannot get in the mood to draw, I like to create warm up exercises by coloring in my own cursive text. Today I wrote the word spring and I colored the letters in with pencil and the background with a sky blue crayon.
The video above showcases how I made this spring cursive text, which is a fun craft to try. Everyone types on computers or phones these days, but how many people do you know who actually still write in cursive? Creating block cursive text is also useful for making a personalized handmade card.
This Easter graphic was drawn by hand and colored in with metallic colored pencils and a silver crayon.
I do not eat eggs, but I do like to draw pictures of these for Easter.
Once I finished shading in the Easter text with a pencil, I went over it with a gold colored pencil so the letters would shine. Also, a pink metallic colored pencil was used on several stripes of the egg, and gold and silver and silver colored pencils were used to shade in the other stripes.
This Saint Patrick’s Day composition consists of a shamrock within a shamrock design. Colored pencils are entertaining for creating original holiday themed designs, so grab a piece of paper and allow the imagination to traverse a bit. Colored pencil drawing is also a form of relaxation, and quite economical as well.
The video documents the creation of the shamrock design from start to finish.
