MY TURN! -The great Art Spark Tutorial begins now!
HERE WE GO! I’m going to share with you the super easy way to create cool Experimental initials.
First-using a Micron Pigma pen or any medium point black pen write an initial quickly. Overlap the strokes and get artist-y and sketchy-maybe even don't lift your pen from the paper
Here Ive overlapped the strokes and even gone back over them-creating spots to color in
Using glittery gel pens fill in a couple spots-here i’ve used the super neato Sparkling pens from Signo- you can get them from Jet pens.com -or you can order the kit from me below!
Ive used the gold and pink and blended them together
Then onto adding the Signo Angelic colors-these are super opaque and really nice on black as you will see! Ive also added some Stickles dots-any glitter glue will do-but I like the dimensionality of the Stickles! Don't color in every space- you’re looking for a stained glass effect!
Heres the final product...now lets try it on black paper!
Same deal on the letters-as above but Ive used the Sakura Calligrapher gold pen in large size for the strokes part
again the Signo Sparkling is added and blended ( any glittery gels would work just fine here too)
The Signo opaques are added
The final product with the Stickles-Voila!
