I had a post up over on the Kuretake blog for a project for March, which is National Reading Month. So we were asked to create bookmarks. These are mine. I printed free images of little "Reading Fairies" and colored them in. I used my regular Zig Markers.
You can see more detail on the close-ups. I wanted to color to be subtle so I took a piece of a clear package that embellishments come in and used it for my "color tray". I just scribbled a circle of each color as I was using it on the package and then dipped the waterbrush into it. That way I could totally control the color and shading.
I found the little boy fairy first, then later found the girl and did one with ehr as well! They're so cute!!!
Here you can see the detail on her. I used really pastel colors on these. I only added minimal embellies also!
These wre really fun to do, I plan on doing more watercoloring this way! One of my favorite things to do growing up was to color, so this just reminds me of being a kid again!!!
