For quite some time I have been playing with the idea of posting a small tutorial, art tidbit or video EVERY Wednesday for a whole year. Well here we are, in the last days of the New Year and it’s time to begin!
Make a little bit of art every day, in a little bitty size. This is one of my favorite things to do with my water reactive (Tombow) markers or watercolor paints, water brush, paintbrushes and watercolor paper.
Take a strip of watercolor any size you wish. A good place to start is a piece that is approximately 3″ x 12″. You can always use wider widths of paper too.
Fold the paper in half, then in half again and open it up. Fold back each little panel in an accordion fashion. For this book each individual panel is 3″x 3″, a perfect size to make little art nuggets.
How super and simple, right??
Paint a loose watercolor or marker border as a background and frame in each panel. let dry completely before adding lettering.
Add your favorite quotes and inspirational thoughts. Use black pens or colorful markers to make lettering in each box. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy or earth-shattering, just make a little art every day!
