Dynamite Dragonfly Decor

Add something wild to your do-it-yourself home decor with this Dynamite Dragonfly Decor project from Tiffany Windsor for Cool2Craft. This is one of those do-it-yourself projects that couldn't be any easier. Simply follow these craft instructions to learn how to doodle a dragonfly for a greeting card, wall art or anything you want. You'll learn tips like smudging and blending that will make your doodle look professionally made. Indulge in some home craft ideas that are simple, fast and fun by trying out this dragonfly doodle.


Dynamite Dragonfly Decor

Materials:

  • Tombow Dual Brush Pens (Tiffany used the Retro and Groovy sets)
  • Tombow non-stick blending mat (or other non-stick surface)
  • Greeting card paper and envelopes

Instructions:

  1. This is so easy! Just grab your Dual Brush pens and start doodling! (Tiffany's dragonfly doodles were inspired by the Magenta dragonfly rubber stamping sample on the Tombow pen package!)
     
  2. Draw an outline of your design with the fine tip.
     
  3. To blend colors, apply the brush tip to a non-stick blending mat to transfer color to the surface of the mat.
     
  4. Next, pick up the colored ink with your colorless blender and start coloring in your doodles. You will notice that the color starts to lighten into an ombre effect as you continue to apply. Repeat to apply different colors. You can pick up one color at a time with the colorless blender or pick up more colors for your own unique color blends.
     
  5. If desired, use the brush tip to add more lines of color.
     
  6. Once you have applied your color, you can also go back and add more outlines to your doodles.
