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.

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.

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 used a green colored pencil to trace firmly over the heart and arrow illustration, thus transferring an etching to a new sheet of paper.

It is exciting once the entire heart has been colored in. Also, just goes to show how rewarding and creative it is to design your own coloring page. I highly recommend it.

Making A Red And Pink Heart Valentine

Today I finished making a red and pink heart Valentine card.

The card above is a reprint of the Valentine heart card that I created. The first step in designing this card was the fold a sheet of paper into a quarter section. Next, I drew a heart on the front of the card.

The simple heart was colored in with a red crayon. Here I am coloring around the red heart with a pink crayon.

A fine-tipped black sharpie was used to trace around the heart, and then I colored it in with a red crayon. Next, I used a pink crayon to color in the background behind the heart image.
