Hello friends, Adrienne from @studio80design here today to show you a fun tutorial on how to create a Dia de los Muertos October monthly calendar spread using the new Tombow Fudenosuke Neon Brush Pens! These Fudenosuke Brush Pens are so fun to work with. Plus, the neon colors really brighten up the page! Let’s get started!
Materials you’ll need:
- Archer and Olive A5 Signature Dot Grid Notebook
- Tombow MONO Graph Mechanical Pencil
- Tombow Fudenosuke Neon Brush Pen Set
- Tombow MONO Drawing Pens
- Tombow MONO Eraser
The first step is to sketch a layout with the Tombow MONO Graph Mechanical Pencil. This helps you know exactly where everything will go. I love using this pencil to sketch. It pretty much goes everywhere with me! I’m going to make seven rows of date boxes with a note box on the far right.
After you’ve marked your page where everything will go, we’re going to draw in the boxes with the Tombow Fudenosuke Neon Brush Pens. Start with a color and go through the palette. After you’ve filled all the boxes in, it will create a beautiful rainbow pattern in your notebook.
Next, take the Tombow MONO Drawing Pen 05 and outline each of the boxes to make them pop!
Now I’m going to write in “October” at the top of the pages. I’m going to do an uppercase font in the Fudenosuke Neon Brush Pens and then outline and add a shadow with the MONO Drawing Pen 05. Outlining in black will help the colors pop and will bring it all together!
The last step is to draw designs around the page and write in the numbers inside each of the boxes. Again, I wrote and drew everything out using the Fudenosuke Neon Brush Pens and then went over it all again with the MONO Drawing Pens. Erase any extra pencil marks with the MONO Eraser! I chose to do a Dia de los Muertos theme for this month. I think the neon colors worked so well!
