Don’t you just love love?! Today I’m going to show you how to create a Valentine’s Day wreath that you could use on a card, or as a gift for someone special. Here’s what you’ll need to get started:
Step 1: Pencil Outlines
The first step in drawing your Valentine’s wreath is to trace a circle (I used an upside-down bowl) then start drawing flowers and leaves around the circle, using your Mono Graph Mechanical Pencil.
Step 2: First Layer of Color
Next, add your lightest color of Dual Brush Pen on the outlines of your flower petals, and use a wet paintbrush to blend it. This will give you a nice soft background color. Watch the time-lapse video below to see how it all comes together.
Step 3: Layers of Color
Once the first layer of ink is dry you can repeat with darker shades in certain areas. I chose to draw stylized chrysanthemums, what’s your favorite flower? Let me know in the comments!
Step 4: Finishing Touches
I added a quote to the center, and outlined the flowers and leaves using Mono Drawing Pens. Do you have a favorite quote or saying about love?
