Japandi Ginkgo drawing
Whether small or large decorations, they give your house or apartment its own character. This elegant DIY project using pigment liner is an absolute must. The self-designed drawing in Japanese-Scandinavian style will give your home a very special touch. The pared-down aesthetic of the ginkgo leaves exude tranquillity and calms the desire for simplicity. The drawing, combined with furniture and accessories in straight lines, brings modern comfort to your home – totally Japandi.

Use a soft pencil (Mars Lumograph, 2B) to evenly shade the back of the template motif.
Tip: You can enlarge the template for paper sizes larger than A4. For larger motifs, you should only use the pigment liners with a line width of 1.0 or 1.2.
Place the template precisely (with the front facing up) on the drafting paper. Then trace the outlines and lines using a sharpened pencil (HB). This transfers the motif onto the paper. Before removing the template, check if all the lines have transferred.
Trace the outlines of the Ginkgo leaves with a pigment liner. Then trace all the inner lines with the pigment liner.
Finally, remove all pencil lines with the eraser.
