The butterfly painting was created with acrylic paints on the front of a handmade card.
Today I finished painting the purple, blue and black butterfly.
First, I drew a butterfly on the front of a handmade card.
Purple acrylic paint was used to shade the large sections on the butterfly wings.
The purple portions of the butterfly wings dried overnight.
Sparkly blue acrylic paint was used to paint in the specks on the butterfly wings.
The rest of the butterfly wings were filled in with the black acrylic paint . Also, sparkly black and white acrylic paint to paint the body of the insect.
The video below illustrates how the butterfly painting evolved over two days.
The heart and arrow Valentine are now in a frame. This was fun and simple coloring page that I created myself, and you can create you own, too!
For Valentine’s Day I decided to make my own coloring page with a red heart and a metallic arrow going through it. Yes, I create Valentine art for the festivity of it all, and this day does not have to be about romance. Projects with a Valentine’s Day theme are fun for people of all ages to create, and why not enjoy spending time with loved ones working on a craft.
I folded the sheet of paper in half so I could draw a symmetrical heart. Also, I drew the bottom part of the arrow.
I unfolded the sheet of paper, and used the impression from the half traced heart to complete the shape. Thus, I was able to create a symmetrical heart. Also, added the arrowhead to the top of the arrow.
I used a green colored pencil to trace firmly over the heart and arrow illustration, thus transferring an etching to a new sheet of paper.
I used a marker to trace around the heart and arrow illustration.
A red colored pencil was used to start coloring in the heart.
Here I have colored in most of the red heart.
It is exciting once the entire heart has been colored in. Also, just goes to show how rewarding it is to design your own coloring page. I highly recommend it.
I used a metallic marker to color in the arrow through the heart.
I used a pink colored pencil to color in around the heart.
