What You Need:
- 9″x12″ white paper, or something close
- Sharpie markers or black marker
- pencil, crayons or markers
*Start by drawing a curved line across the paper with a Sharpie marker. Think rolling hill… not roller coaster!
*Add 8 dots across the line.
They should be different lengths apart.
You need a dot close to the edges of your paper.
*Start connecting the dots with bumps.
The lines from the dots close to the edge will go off the edge of the paper to an imaginary dot.
*The lines will eventually go off the top and bottom of the paper .
*Fill the whole paper.
Pick a group of colors you feel work well together (2 or 3 colors).
*Using pencil, crayons, or markers, fill in the spaces. Press harder in the corners. As you get near the top of each bump, press lighter and lighter.
*Continue until the work is complete.
Crazy, right?? How are your eyes?
