How we did it:

Materials List

  1. paper
  2. black pen or marker
  3. colored pencils
  1. We didn't use paint or markers for coloring because we didn't want running lines or smears. Crayons and pencils do the trick!

  2. First Madeleine drew her picture. She loved contemplating what it would be... finally deciding upon a kittycat.

  3. Then she outlined it with marker.

  4. On a piece of scratch paper, she worked out a few designs she liked.

  5. And started working on her subject. He's fine! She divided him into lines and designs,

  6. and when he was done, she colored him in, then worked on the background.

  7. Maddie loved this project! How cool to take a usual drawing, and turn it into something completely different!
