Hello everyone!! Welcome back to another Art Lab post! Today I’ll be showing you a quick and super easy technique on drawing Mandala’s. I’ve always found it hard to draw fine detail flowers and such, but I love how this technique is super easy and the results are always great!
Hello everyone!! I haven’t done a recent art post for almost 6 months (WHAT??) so today I decided to do one! 🙂 Recently I have been making SO MANY projects and I’m excited to share them with you! I also made a cute little organizer that I have a tutorial for, which I’m also excited to share!
Hello everyone! I am so excited to show you my new Etsy shop! I have been wanting to do this for a while now, actually ever since I had this awesome idea, which I will be sharing with you in a minute! Anyway, I will be selling high quality, hand painted with watercolor, cards, in the size and shape of ATC’s. These textured cards are the perfect canvas for collages, doodles, whatever you like!
The final! I am so sad! 😦 😦 But look out next Monday for a fun new season!
Anyway, Hello Everyone! Today it is obviously the final and I have decided to do something super special! A galaxy ATC how to! Continue reading “Paint and Pens #6”

Hello everyone! Welcome to the second episode of my craft series!
Note: I have decided to call my craft series “Paint and Pens”
Have you ever colored adult coloring books? I have and really like them! Today we are going to make Adult Coloring ATC’s, they are really easy and super fun to make!
For today’s ATC’s you will need an adult coloring book page, pencils or fine tip markers, gel pens (optional but highly recommended)
- This is a super easy ATC to make!
- Draw 2 1/2″ by 3 1/2″ rectangles onto the adult coloring book page with a pencil.
- Note: Make sure to be careful of where you draw out your ATC’s, for example if there is a pretty flower that you want in your ATC make sure not to cut it in half 🙂
- Cut out the traced rectangles.
- Now time for the fun part!
- Color in the ATC’s with markers or pencils.
- I like to outline the shapes with gel pens, especially the glitter kind! It adds a pretty shine to them! (thanks to my clever friend Anna for the idea)
Here are some of the Adult coloring book ATC’s that I made!
I hope you had fun making ATC’s with me! Watch out for next weeks episode of Paint and Pens!
Sneak peak for next week!
Have a great week!
Hello everyone! Welcome to my first craft series post! These next 6 weeks we will explore all about ATC’s (artist trading cards) how to make them and what to do with them!
First, what are Artist Trading Cards?
These 2 1/2″ by 3 1/2″ little works of art can be gifted, traded or kept, (but NEVER SOLD) Add what you want to them, why you can even draw on them, or dip them in paint! Whatever you want!
How do you make ATC’s?
Start with a 2 1/2″ by 3 1/2″ piece of cardstock. Add what you want! It could be something from nature, a pretty piece of paper, whatever expresses you creativity!
Why make art anyway?
Art makes us feel good about ourselves! It helps us express our creativity with the world!
Lets get started on making ATC’s! Today we will make 3 very basic (but still fun) cards!
(I like to cut out a bunch of the cards at once, then when I want to make an ATC I just pick up a card and start creating, you can also buy precut ATC cards on amazon)
Cut three 2 1/2″ by 3 1/2″ pieces of cardstock and set aside.
I love how modern and neat this simple ATC is!
- You are going to begin with the WIFI symbol
- Next draw a border
- Finally write, “Cuz’ I’m out of WIFI”
Remember to make it your own!
This ATC almost looks like a heartbeat to me!
- Draw squiqly lines all around the card
Use your creativity to find fun colors to use!
Another fun ATC! I love using markers to add designs!
- Begin by drawing curved lines diagonally across the card
- Next draw designs in between the lines!
Have fun drawing designs!
I hope you had fun making ATC’s with me! Next week we will go more in-depth and make a really cool ATC! But this week I just wanted to keep it simple!
