Introduction: FrAcTuReD FLOWERS
This is a fun drawing activity that looks very easy but you really must be mindful while you are working on coloring the flowers so you don't "cross-the-line"
Step 1: Supplies
All you need is drawing paper, any size will work, I used 9"X12"
black sharpie marker
assorted color pencils
Step 2: Create a Border
Start with a dot in each corner of your paper. Draw a line connecting the dots to form a border.
Step 3: Begin the Drawing
Start with three large stems, remember to draw the stems as parallel lines, these will eventually be colored in and you can't color a line, you need space in between!
Add a lot of leaves and flowers to the drawing. You want your drawing to fill the page.
Step 4: Choosing Your Colored Pencils
Choose four groups of 3 colors of pencils. Pick your base color plus 2 analogous colors (one lighter and darker).
If you don't have colored pencils you can use any other drawing or painting materials you have on hand.
Step 5: Draw an X
Use the sharpie to draw a large X on top of the pencil drawing, also go over the border line with the marker.
Step 6: Begin Coloring
Choose one area of the X and one group of colors, color that section while remaining very mindful not to "cross the line".
Work your way around your drawing and color each section with a specific group of colors.
Step 7: Finished!
When each section has been colored you are finished. If you like the white background that's fine. If not choose another color that you haven't used to finish your drawing. I chose lavender.
Step 8: Mixed Media
This is a sample of the activity using colored pencils and colored markers. You can get creative and mix any supplies you have just keeping to the same color field.
