This year, to celebrate Mother’s Day, we thought we’d share a beautiful project you can easily create at home. To get started, just pick out your favourite photo of you and your mother and follow the easy steps. A creative way of saying, “I love you!”
- Graphite pencil
- Tracing paper
- Coloured pen
- Marker or mixed media paper
- Coloured markers
- Black fine-tip marker
Place the tracing paper on the photo and outline the components by simplifying the shapes as much as possible.
Turn the tracing paper over and generously apply pencil, making sure to cover with graphite each line drawn on the front.
Place the tracing paper over a sheet of marker or mixed media paper (slightly smaller than 6″ × 4″) and transfer the drawing by tracing it. A coloured pen allows you to see where the lines have already been traced.
Colour the shapes with coloured markers.
Outline the contours with the black fine-tip marker and erase the graphite pencil lines.
