Squiggly Biro Art

20140208_173816Okay so the title is pretty poor – I’ll give you that, but I found a new style of doodling that I really love. There’s lots of pictures on pinterest, blogs etc that have words which make a shape – like a heart made out of the word love in lots of languages, which are cute. But I wanted to do something a bit different, so I decided to try and make words out of shapes, and I am really pleased with the result.

You will need: colourful biro pens, paper, pencil and a rubber.

First of all draw out your word outline in pencil, you could write a name, a quote, whatever, just make sure it’s in bubble writing. This one is a lyric from a song we had at our wedding. Then start to draw little squiggles in one colour, varying in size, almost like zebra print. Use your other colours and do the same – I wouldn’t use more than 5 colours. 20140205_015927Keep adding squiggles to the picture, filling the gaps between each line with more lines. Make the squiggles around the letters more dense than the outside.20140205_021321 When you think you have done enough, hold the picture at a distance and see whether the words are readable, if they are rub out the pencil lines and that’s it.

Here’s a close up…20140208_211157This is a cute way to make pictures, and a lot better than spending a couple of quid on some tacky inspirational poster. Here are a couple more I have done. 20140208_17381620140208_173845

Enjoy, Love Mrs Gardom
