Hi, Jessica Mack from BrownPaperBunny here! This week I’m going to show you how I created these bright playroom decor pieces with Walnut Hollow and Tombow products. Here’s what you’ll need to get started:
- Cactus Shape from Walnut Hollow
- Trapezoid Shelf from Walnut Hollow
- Tombow Dual Brush Pens
- Paint Brush
- Tombow Blending Palette
- Watercolor Paper
- Tombow MONO Aqua Liquid Glue
- Tombow MONO Drawing Pen
- Tombow Xtreme Tabs
Step 1: Stain Your Walnut Hollow Pieces
I wanted to color my wooden pieces, but still preserve the tips on my Dual Brush Pens, one way to do that is to use a Blending Palette, water and a paintbrush to transfer the Dual Brush Pen ink onto the wood and create a colorful stain. Let each application of ink dry before adding another layer for a deeper color. To get the color shown here use Dual Brush Pen 245 (Sap Green) for the first two coats and 296 (Green) for the last two coats.
Step 2: Draw Your Decorations
Next draw some cactus flowers and a cute little llama (see Marie B’s llama tutorial and download here) to decorate your colorful wooden pieces. Start by applying Dual Brush Pen ink via the Blending Palette and a paintbrush. Then once the ink is dry outline them and add detail using MONO Drawing Pens.
Step 3: Add Your Decorations
Once you’ve finished drawing your decorations, cut them out and stick them to the Walnut Hollow pieces using Tombow Xtreme Tabs. Now they’re ready for the playroom!
