How are you doing its been a loooooooong time I have posted something here. Sorry for leaving my space unattended and keeping you all waiting. I have been held up with some exams and couldn’t post anything here. I almost forgot “Happy Ramzan” to all my Muslim buddies 🙂 Wishes and Apologies done now shall we move on to what I have in store for you. I wasn’t posting anything lately but I have been making few crafts now and then to keep me sane ;). So this week lets start with a lighter and easier post.
In school every child might have used a colour pencil. It might have been our fancy to colour every colouring page given by our craft teacher. We get fascinated by the crayons and colour pencils when we were young. As we grew up we moved to better colouring means like paint water colour and many more. We have left behind the colour pencils and thought they were for kids and we think we have out grown it.
Its never a sin to go back to your childhood and relive those happiness. It makes us feeling good. Same way I thought of doing a colour pencil drawing in memory of my childhood colouring books. But this time the colouring was a bit matured :). Its not a bad idea anyway It turned out to be a pretty nice drawing. Let me show you how I made one !
Supplies Required :
Ordinary drawing pencil
My Method :
Since we are grown up now we will draw our own drawing instead of the colouring books
So the first step is to trace the design in a simple pencil outline drawing
Once the design is complete slightly rub it with eraser It should be seen but not so prominent
Now start colouring with the colour pencils
I used only two colours. SInce mine is a floral design, Green for leaves and Pink for the flowers thats it I meant it to be simple
First Green outline to the stem and leaves draw with little pressure
Then colour the insides of the outline without pressure ever so lightly
Next is the flower I drew the outlines darker and made few places opaque with thick colour
Then the left out part inside the flower was coloured pink but lighter like we did in the leaves
We are almost done.Now I made it a little darker here and there few finishing touches and I am amazed by my pretty drawing myself.
Really a good drawing with such simple tools
Go grab your set of colour pencils and make your pencil drawings in colour 🙂
Making bookmarks was one of my favourite craft. I have made many different bookmark. I I almost had an obsession for making bookmarks. My buddy got inspired by me and he tried making a few bookmarks using chart paper and water colour. They are for kids, comic book since they look a little kiddish any kid will love to keep it between their comic book pages. The creative idea was making book marks in the shape of objects like bat, feather etc. It looks pretty cute idea isn’t it ? I personally kept all these bookmarks. Here we go a round up on his creativity
Wish you all a wonderful and prosperous Happy New Year. This New year I have made the biggest bunch of greeting cards for all my friends and family. It made me really happy. I wanted to share with you the cool New Year Greeting card I made. If anyone wanted to make last minute new year gift this tutorial might help you. You will need very little supplies
Its kind of a origami paper folding technique. But don’t worry its the simplest. I have made a clear and simple Video tutorial which is less than 5 mins. So try making your own handmade greeting card. This is much better and personal than a store bought hallmark card. Here is the tutorial for you.
Supplies Required :
Glitter Pens and Craft Punch (optional)
My Method :
Take a square piece of Origami Paper (I chose RED colour)
Fold the paper into smaller square 1/4th the size of the original square in the same way as shown in the video
Take a card stock of size 1cm bigger than the paper.
Now stick the folded paper on the cardstock
You are almost done.
Now the decoration part.
You can let your creativity play the role.
I traced a Big 2015 on top of the folded paper and added some Rhinestones as charms.
Inside I made a few doodles a few craft punches stuck here and there and the New Year wish
I also added a tag on the top corner of the card to open it (this was not included in the video)
Thats it pretty New year greeting card ready. You can use it for any occasion you just have to change the decorations little.
Cool and Super easy isn’t it ? I love the surprise part of the message unfolding once you open the card.
