Coloring In The Cursive Text Spring

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.

I colored in the text with a 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.



Easter Cursive Text And Egg

This Easter graphic was drawn by hand and colored in with metallic colored pencils and a silver crayon.

First I drew out the Easter cursive text and egg with a pencil.

I do not eat eggs, but I do like to draw pictures of these for Easter.

I used a silver metallic pencil to color in the background behind the Easter cursive text and striped egg.

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.

A silver crayon went over the silver colored pencil background to create a shiny image.

Creating A Shamrock Within A Shamrock Design

The shamrock within a ¬†shamrock design is verdant and lush for Saint Patrick’s Day.

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 shamrock design begins with a small golden green shamrock drawn within a slightly larger light green shamrock.
The optical illusion of shamrocks on top of shamrocks continues by using different shades of metallic green colored pencils to frame each shamrock with a larger one until the page is filled.
Bluish green, light green, golden green and dark green colored pencils were used to create the shamrock design.
The larger green shamrock was created by burnishing a light green and metallic gold colored pencils.
The shamrock design was finished off with a darker green shamrock expanding beyond the edges of the paper.

The video documents the creation of the shamrock design from start to finish.
