Step #1

Always start out with a sketch.  I have a spiral-bound book that I draw rough outlines of all my doodles and printable ideas.  This is a great way to save all those quotes I randomly come across.  

Step #2 

The Cricut BrightPad is one of my favorite tools when it comes to creating printable files, doodles and drawings.  By layering the rough sketch under the smooth printer paper I can quickly and easily create different versions of the same quote.  Ink in the image with a medium grey pen.  

Step #3
  • Next, take the shadow quote and layer a new piece of smooth printer paper on top.  
  • Trace around the quote with a fine tip permanent marker.

Step #4
  • Color the background in the lightest of blue markers.
  • Letter the darker words with the brush tip of the black marker.
  • Outline the block letters using the bullet tip of the marker.

Step # 5
  • Start out with a sample color palette to make sure the final piece will have the perfect combination.
  • Add the rainbow perspective to the word FEELS at the bottom of the quote. 
  • Outline the colors and the quote with the bullet tip of the black marker.
