Colorful butterflies.

Hello dear friends! Kasia Krzymińska here. I'm so happy and honoured to be here and I can't wait to share with you my very first project made as a Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® guest designer. What I prepared for you is  very simple tag with hand-drawn butterflies.


First step was to create background. I covered manila tag with thin and irregular layer of gesso.

Hello dear friends! Kasia Krzymińska here. I'm so happy and honoured to be here and I can't wait to share with you my very first project made as a Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® guest designer. What I prepared for you is  very simple tag with hand-drawn butterflies. 

First step was to create background. I covered manila tag with thin and irregular layer of gesso.

When it was completely dry I started with my Gelatos® Colors. I worked on craft sheet so I used them directly on it.

Next step was to add a little bit of water on them with my atomiser and to delight how they beautifully blended together :)

Do you know I could stop working right now and just repeat these steps only to watch blending colors for hours?
That was sooo inspiring! But what I actually did is that:

When it was dry I startet sketching my butterflies using PITT® Artist Pens. Because of their different nibs I could create my butterflies using thin lines as well as wide brush strokes.

Then I started coloring using Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils and water. India ink in PITT® Artist Pens is permanent and waterproof when dry so you don't have to worry that your sketch will blurry.

I also used white PITT® Artist Pen on my drawing to add some glimmer.

And here is my tag after some stamping and misting:
