I realize that it still Sunday evening but I am posting my Monday blog post just a little bit early.

Kathy over at thedailymarker.com is having what she is calling a Pop up Challenge and it is all about lines!  I was intrigued with her Day 1 Challenge and thought I would give it a try! The idea is to make lines on your paper and then start coloring! I figured that was easy enough so I drew my lines with a black Sharpie and then colored in my areas with Copic markers.   I started out with a half piece of Whisper White cardstock and created what you see below.

PopUp Challenge 6079

I cut this piece down to 5″ x 3 3/4″ and then added little “eyelash lines” as Kathy refers to them using a fine tip Sharpie.  My base is Whisper White cardstock with a piece of Basic Black on top of it.  My sentiment is one of the words in the Greetings Thinlits.

As I was coloring, I was thinking how fun this would have been for my second graders.  If there are any teachers reading this, definitely try this with your students!  I think they would love it and I know they would create gorgeous art pieces!

If you decide to give it a try, I would love to see your creations!  Have a terrific week!
