Learn step-by-step how to create 3 easy wreaths with lettering using Tombow USA products and the Pantone Color of the Year, Greenery! Hi lovelies, it’s Lauren again and I am so excited to share this fun set of tutorials incorporating Tombow’s take on Pantone’s dreamy Color of the Year!
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
- Tombow Fudenosuke Hard Tip Brush Pen
- Tombow Irojiten Colored Pencil in Lettuce Green (and other assorted colors)
- Mix Media Paper (I used Strathmore)
1. SIMPLE WREATHS
Start by drawing a circle on the Mix Media Paper with the Tombow Fudenosuke Hard Tip Brush Pen. I used my colored pencil holder as a template and traced around. Don’t worry if it’s not perfect… after it is embellished, you will never be able to tell.
Add leaves going the same direction around the circle with the Tombow Fudenosuke Hard Tip Brush Pen.
Color in the leaves of the wreath with a Tombow Irojiten Colored Pencil in Lettuce Green.
Add some mixed style of lettering for a laid back and simple phrase.
2. SLOPPY GRAPEVINE WREATHS
Start by free-handing 5-7 sloppy circles that overlap with the Tombow Fudenosuke Hard Tip Brush Pen.
Add small leaves with the Tombow Fudenosuke Hard Tip Brush Pen.
Berries are the perfect addition for a little pop of color. Scatter some drawn dots throughout the wreath with the Tombow Fudenosuke Hard Tip Brush Pen.
Color in the leaves with a Tombow Irojiten Colored Pencil in lettuce green, and the bright Plastic Pink will be perfect pop of color on the berries.
Add a warm phrase or quote in the middle in a whimsical style with the Tombow Fudenosuke Hard Tip Brush Pen.
3. FLORAL SWAGS / WREATHS
Start by drawing 2 curvy lines that meet at a point with the Tombow Fudenosuke Hard Tip Brush Pen on the Mix Media Paper.
Turn one of the tips into a leaf and add leaves. Then create flowers along the sides by creating swirls and adding petals to the outside with the Tombow Fudenosuke Hard Tip Brush Pen.
Continue until you reach the center, then start adding leaves and flowers from the other tip in the opposite direction.
Color in with the Irojiten Colored Pencils: Lettuce Green for the leaves and Plastic Pink and Cameo Pink for the flowers. The same kind of design can be drawn in a circle to create a wreath.
Add a little bit of your own ideas and creativity to these fun wreaths and make art worthy of frames and perfect for cards. For more tips and tricks like this post, check out my Instagram and blog!
