One of the nice features about the pattern paper in the Strathmore Art Journal Kits, is that they are double sided. The back coordinates with the front, so colorful collages are possible without wasting a lot of paper.
1. I had students cut out a rectangle from one of their pattern pages, and then triangles from one side to make a crown. A small rounded rim was cut out, as well as 3 circles to stick on the top points of the crown. All were glued down to a white journal page.
2. The face and shoulders were drawn in pencil under the crown. When complete, all lines were traced with a fine-tip permanent marker. A writing prompt was added on a side saying, “My name is Queen _______.’
3. The face and hair were colored in with pencil crayon, and the background was shaded as well.
5. Don’t miss entering my Art Journal Kit Giveaway.
