Need another fun activity using your RoseArt Markers? Here is a mind-blowing craft that will transform a simple marker design into a work of art! This craft is great for older children, as there are precise measurements and cutting involved. And of course, a little patience is needed as well!

You need a few simple supplies for this craft:

  • RoseArt Broadline Markers
  • RoseArt Glue Sticks
  • White Construction paper 9” x 12”
  • Black Construction paper 12” x 18”
  • Ruler
  • Pencil and Eraser
  • Scissors

 

Start by drawing diagonal lines on the white construction paper using your RoseArt Broadline Markers. I used a variety of colors to make the design more dynamic. Be creative and have fun with it!

 

Once done, turn the page over and draw 24 half-inch wide strips. Use your pencil and ruler to make the lines as accurate as possible. Once you are done, number the lines 1 through 24.

 

Now it’s time to create some movement! Start by cutting out strip #12 and glue to the middle of your black construction paper. Use the picture as a guide!

 

Starting with the LEFT side, we want to create a fan effect with the strips. Start by cutting strip #11, put glue on the back and overlap the left edge the strip with the left edge of strip #12, allowing the strips to fan out slightly. Repeat this for strips 10 through 1 (in that order), forming an upward curve. Take a look at the picture below!

 

Once strips 1 through 11 are glued down, start with the second half of your masterpiece. This time, you will fan the strips on the opposite side to create a downward curve.

Start by cutting and gluing strip #13, and overlap the right edge of the strip with the right edge of strip #12, once again allowing the strips to fan out. Repeat with the remaining strips and create a downward curve.

 

Now it’s time to admire your impressive masterpiece! Don’t forget to show it off to your family and friends!
