Mardi Gras Beads

Hello Make It Monday!

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Some of y’all are off due to President’s Day so, here’s to the long weekend. Anyways, today I am showing off how I hand-drew a simple but appropriate for this time of year drawing. Let’s get started with “Mardi Gras Beads…”

Things Used:

Step #1:

Step #2:

Instead of tracing right over my circles, I placed my pencil drawing under my next piece of Canson Marker Paper and started using my Fine Tip Sharpie Pens to make my final copy of my Mari Gras Beads.ย  I started with my Green Fine Tip Sharpie Pen.
