Mixed Media Watering Can

Kathy Peterson Inspired Bird on Watering Can

I’m having so much fun as part of the Faber-Castel Design Memory Craft Mix & Match design team!  Over the next few months I’ll be posting fun and easy projects using their fabulous art products!  This week I decided to color outside of the lines and here’s how I did it.

Kathy Peterson Inspired step 1over stamp outside of sketch

Step 1.  Sketch a bird onto white paper using the Pitt Pastel pen. Apply black Indian  ink onto the flower stamp and randomly stamp onto bird.  Using the green Indian ink, stamp entire bird.   P.S. it’s okay to stamp outside the lines!

Step 2.   Using Pitt® Art GRIP® pencils in green and yellow tones, randomly color inside the bird sketch.  It’s easy to “Mix & Match” the colors because Faber-Castell has done all the color work.  Using the brush inside the kit, dip in water and apply over the penciled colors you just applied.  Allow to dry.

Step 3.  Cut out the bird shape and grunge it up using the Pitt® Pastel pencils.  Secure to any surface---I chose to use a vintage watering can!

Stay inspired!
