Mixed media flower drawing tutorial on YouTube

Hey friend,

My new mixed media drawing tutorial was published on Sakura of America YouTube channel recently.

This is a really fun and easy project using Koi brush pens and Cray-Pas oil pastel sticks.

I don’t use oil pastel very much in my work usually, so it was fun to play with this medium!

The texture is really beautiful and I felt like a kid again getting my hands dirtyย ๐Ÿ˜€

I hope you enjoy it and please don’t forget to tag me @honeyberrystudios if you share your work on Instagram!

Have a creative fun day ๐Ÿ˜˜

Drawing tutorial video behind the scenes

I worked on a new drawing tutorial video for Sakura of Americaย last week.

It’s a mixed media drawing of colorful flowers in a vase. Perfect for spring, don’t you think?

my humble video shoot set-up

I mostly made my piece with Sakura Koi brush pens and enjoyed trying their Quickie Glue in this video, too.

(Plus glittersโ€ฆ So sparkly๐Ÿคฉ)

I’ll keep you posted on when the video comes out on their YouTube channel.

New Drawing Tutorial on YouTube

Hello, hello!

My “Let’s draw a poppy!” drawing tutorial is on Sakura of America’s YouTube channel now!

You can watch it here:

It’s super quick and easy, all you need is colored markers (I use Sakura Koi Brush Pens), a black pen (I use my Micron), and a sketchbook.

I love drawing these cheerful poppies ๐Ÿ™‚ They make me excited for the summer months ahead!

You can play with different color combos, too.

Purple & magenta poppies with green Gellyroll outline for the leaves and stems.
Yellow & orange poppies. They look like tiny sun ๐Ÿ™‚
Blue and purple poppies with white Gellyroll lines.

These poppies are joy to draw โค Be sure to follow me on Instagram and tag me (@honeyberrystudios) if you share your poppy drawings ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy creating!

Something exciting is happening on Instagram this week!

insta_icon_notext_loresAre you on Instagram? If so, check out Sakura of America‘s feed this coming week! I’ll be their guest Instagrammer ๐Ÿ™‚ Woo hoo!

I’ve loved using their products for several years, especially the micron penย (I often use black micron size 01)ย and Koi Coloring Brush Pens. So I was super excited when they reached out to me and invited me to be their guest Instagrammer.

Looks like I'm not going to run out anytime soon...
Looks like I’m not going to run out anytime soon…

They first contacted me last summerย after I competed my 365 Day Happiness Is drawing project from April 2014 to April 2015. When I say put your work out there consistently and the opportunities will come, I’m not kidding!
