Colored with Copic marker (Copic Ciao Lilac V04). This is the first time I use Copic markers but I surely will stick with them in the future. I love the way they don’t make lines when coloring and you can also easily blend various shades to get great results. I bought just a couple of markers to try them out (they are on the expensive side) but I plan on expanding my collection.
Christmas is coming so it’s time to get busy making Christmas cards and decorations. Here is a video tutorial on how to draw a simple ornament, which would look great on greeting cards or any other seasonal decoration. I used Faber-Castell Artist Pens (Set of 4) Color: Sepia and a brown pencil for adding some color and shading. I used a tea candle for the outline but you can use a compass or any other circular object depending on what size you want your ornament to be.
Halloween is coming so here is an idea for a Halloween doodle. It could be used for a greeting card. You can color it or draw it on orange paper or just leave it as it is. Or you could just take some of the elements – the jack-o’-lantern, the bat or the tree – and make your own composition.
Here is an idea how to make a Valentine Card zentangle style. It’s very easy, the patterns are simple, but it’s somewhat time consuming because of the small circle pattern, which I used to fill in the card. However doodling is also very relaxing and you can spend an afternoon chilling out while making some valentines.
Here’s a video showing how to draw a simple Christmas tree zentangle style. It’s suitable for beginners since I used very easy to make patterns and shapes. Nonetheless it would look great on Christmas cards and other holiday decorations. You can also use it to make small Christmas gifts such as bookmarks, coasters and ornaments.
I will soon be posting pictures of some Christmas postcards and bookmarks I made.
