Thanksgiving-Inspired Mixed Media Art Page 1

Hello friends, this is Smitha! It’s the season to be thankful! I’m pulling out my sketchbook today to paint something fall themed. I’m creating a mixed media art page and sharing the steps with you!


Material list:


Step 1:

Start with a pencil sketch of various leaf shapes. Fill the page completely with the leaf shapes. I’ve added a few flowers in there too. I just love florals.

Add some color onto the page using a Dual Brush Pen of your choice. Spread the color out slowly using the Tombow Water Brush.


Step 2:

Since Dual Brush Pens are water-based, this technique works beautifully! Use a couple of different Dual Brush Colors to paint the entire page. Let your work dry naturally.


Step 3:

Letter the words “Thankful” or “Thankful everyday” using the Fudenosuke Brush Pen. To highlight the lettering, add a little white paint around the lettering.

To finish off the page, I added white paint highlights to the leaves as well. The final step is to outline the leaves and flowers with the Fudenosuke Brush Pen to create uneven lines that add a sketchy feel to the page.


I hope you enjoyed this tutorial friend! Happy crafting!
