In one of my recent posts I mentioned a book I got for free at a yard sale this weekend. It's the Modern Dressmaking Made Easy by Mary Brooks Picken from 1940. It has great illustrations. I copied some and printed them on watercolor paper. Then I painted them with my new water color crayons. I'm clearly not a great watercolor artist but for a first try I think it looks pretty nice. I'm really happy with the project as a whole.
I watch alot of crafting videos on You Tube. Lots of ladies love coloring with copic markers. I'm sure they could do a great job with images like these. This is the best I could do. I'm sure I will get better with practice.
