I’m relatively certain there’s a fancy artsy name for what I’m doing in this challenge. Maybe a negative space drawing or something like that.
The idea is that you have a shape, which you can draw, cut out and tape down, whatever, then you outline a shape with designs, so when you take the shape away you still see it.
I used a bunny because I already had these printed (from East Coast Mommy if you want your own).
Start with a piece of paper or card stock.
Print out or draw your image, cut it out and tape it to the card. I used painter’s tape so it would pull up easily.
Use markers, crayons, pencils, little stickers, paint, whatever to decorate up to the edges of the design.
I used a variety of colors and sort of repeating patterns on mine.
Then you’re done, remove the image and you should still see its shadow in the negative space.
Did I say see its shadow? I’m totally doing this with a groundhog next time.
Have you ever done a project using negative space like this? I’d love to hear about it.
If you try this project I would love to see your results!
