In this interview, Jessie Arnold of @mrs.arnoldsarttoom is here to show you how you can create your very own DIY colouring pages! And honestly, this interview could NOT have come at a better time!!
Check out the video, and then scroll down for my key takeaways and a list of all the resources we mentioned!
IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN:
- How to properly map out your design
- How to fill out any “empty spaces” in your colouring page design
- The best place to find reference photos
- Simple tricks you can use to hide any “mistakes” or imperfections in your design
- AND MORE!!!
KEY TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS LESSON:
- Use simple easy shapes when building your letters
- If you need to fill in any empty spots, simple florals, greenery and hearts work great!
- If you need to draw something you’re less familiar with, Google it!! Even better, search for “clip art” for flat images!
- If your need to touch up any of your lines, you can use a thin black marker to clean and polish up your design.
- Adding a grey shadow to your design is an easy way to add dimension to your design! You can also use a white gel pen on darker areas as a highlight.
TOOLS USED IN THIS VIDEO:
- Regular paper (printer paper is great!)
- A medium and fine tip black marker (Zig Dual Tip Writer & Paper Mate Flair)
- Grey maker (Pilot Futayaku Double-Sided Brush Pen)
- White gel pen (I love the Uni-Ball Signo Gel Pen!)
