Months ago, when the April Scrawlr box arrived, I blogged about the March box. Now as part of my actually-blogging-the-backlog-of-monthly-challenges series I’m gonna tell you about the April box. Only 4 months late.
The April Scrawlr box contained a couple of fineliners, the ever present pencil, a kneaded eraser that I forgot to photo, and some brush markers.
And the sticker of course.
…and then I drew myself a little rabbit creature. Except that these markers are not so great for colouring.
So I did some research – by which I mean that I watched a whole bunch of YouTube videos – and discoverered that they’re really good for lettering. So I did some lettering.
It also transpired that the ink inside is supposedly watercolour paint ink. So I did some more swatching, this time with a wet paintbrush as well.
Then I had another go, using more appropriate paper.
I had fun playing around with the markers, but I didn’t really have a finished piece for this box. I didn’t resonate with the supplies, but as my watercolour skills have been increasing, maybe I can do better at some point in the future.
