We started by finding a couple patterns that I could draw for the boys on the pumpkins. First in pencil, then in marker.
After I drew the outlines, they went to town. And what I thought would be nice, even dots, turned out to be blob after blob. They were having fun though so that's all that really mattered, right?! Kaden went with a Flash pattern and then Logan went with Frankenstein.
I decided to try and do a skull and attempted to cover it in little dots of all different colors. I outlined in white, started with bright pink and then as I got closer and closer to the middle I kept switching up to more subtle pink colors--hoping to give it an ombre effect. I know, I am way into this ombre trend.
and after about 30 minutes they looked like this....
but what was I expecting, masterpieces like mine?!?
We might need to wait a few more years before we try this technique out again!
