Faber-Castell White Pens & Whimsical Leaves

Leaves are beginning to fall in our neighborhood, and that has me ready for all things Fall. One of my favorite creative activities is to paint watercolor leaves. However, when I came across the new Faber-Castell white pens I had an idea for some fun hand-drawn leaves.

First I gathered up my supplies - different color cardstock (I went with traditional Fall colors, but this would be fun with any variety of colors), Pitt pens, a pencil, and scissors.

Next, using a pencil I sketched out simple leaf shapes. Don't worry about lots of detailed edges, just draw a variety of shapes and sizes.

Then using my Pitt pens I drew the stem of the leaf and began adding fun details. I chose to draw whimsical details with circles, lines, and flourishes.

Lastly I cut out my leaves (trimming off my pencil sketch of the leaf outline) giving me a pretty collection of leaves perfect for scrapbooking, adding to a mixed media project, or even stringing up as a garland.

I hope you enjoy experimenting with the new Faber-Castell white pens!

Hello, crafty folks. It´s Denisa here. My first project for Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® is an art journal spread in a bit of vintage mood and a great deal of mixed media featuring the awesome Stamper´s Big Brush Pens.

I love art journaling since there are no rules and limits. Whatever you do is totally up to your choice and the result is pretty unpredictable. One doesn´t have to plan things, they just happen as you go and it´s all about your imagination and freedom.
