Chinese Sun Catcher

Hello dear reader!  It's back to my normal routine.  TGIF!

While we were in Animal Kingdom in Disney World, I saw this book in the Asian area:

It's a booklet of Chinese designs printed on vellum, ready to color and make sun catchers out of them. 

The instruction says you can use any medium from crayons, pens, acrylic, water color, tempera or oil paint.  For my first try, I used Copics.

One thing I learned is that it is hard to blend Copics on vellum.  The instruction said it will look better if you color both sides, but I just colored only one side to see how it looks like.  And yes, I was lazy too... hee hee!

This is my final product:

I punched the around a big circle with a Martha Stewart jumbo corner punch.  Then added flower sequins for final touches.

This is how it looks with light shining through:

Materials used:

cardstock:  CostCo
ink:  Copics
tools:  Martha Stewart
embellishments:  Prima, flower sequins
adhesive:  Zots

I'll try other mediums next time, and see which one works best.

'Til next blog!
