Four Ways to Decorate an Easter Egg

Posted by Adrienne Castleton on

Hello friends, Adrienne from @studio80design here today to show you four ways you can decorate an Easter egg in your notebook! I’m using a few different pens and markers to show you a variety of different drawing techniques! Let’s get started!

 

Materials you’ll need:

 

The first step is to draw four ovals for your Easter eggs on your page of the Archer and Olive Watercolor Notebook using the Tombow MONO Graph Mechanical Pencil.

Next, I drew florals, leaves and berries inside all the eggs. The drawings have the same elements, but each one is a little different! Now I’ll show you how you can decorate each of these eggs!

Egg 1

For the first egg I am using the Tombow MONO Drawing Pen 02 to ink in my flowers, leaves and berries onto my egg. I’m not going to draw the outline of my egg, so I am going to fill in the shape of my egg as much as possible so it holds the shape. Then I used the MONO Drawing Pen 01 to draw in small detail lines in the florals and add small circles to fill out the shape.

Egg 2

This next egg will be colored with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. I used a light blue marker to scribble onto a blending palette and then used the Medium Water Brush to add water and use it to add a wash of color to the entire egg. Then wait for it to dry!

When dry, use shades of pinks and greens of Dual Brush Pens to color in the flowers, leaves and berries using the bullet tip of the marker!

Egg 3

For the third egg, I’m going to use the Tombow MONO Drawing Pen 01 to outline each of the flowers and leaves for this egg. Then I’m going to color in the negative space of this egg so all the florals are white. I love the final effect of this egg!

Egg 4

The last egg will be colored with the Fudenosuke Hard Tip Brush Pen and Dual Brush Pens. Use the Fudenosuke Brush Pen to outline the flowers and leaves. Because this is a brush pen, when you draw you will get a variety of line widths! This pen is also waterproof, so I added a light wash of pink watercolor from a Dual Brush Pen and colored in the flowers and leaves with Dual Brush Pens!
