Christmas Design 1 - Pencil

Draw on the lines as illustrated in the diagram with a pencil. Draw these lines very lightly, and they will not show up in the final design.

Front (1): Divide the egg into eighths. You start by drawing one long line around the longest part of the egg, until it meets up with itself. Next, draw a long line at a right angle to this one, until it meets up with itself. At this point, the egg should have a cross at the top and bottom of the egg. Lastly, draw one line around the middle of the egg. Now the egg is divided into 8 equal sized parts.

Front (2): Draw 2 lines parallel to the main horizontal and vertical dividing lines, as shown.

Front (3): Draw the large diamonds around each place the horizontal and vertical lines meet, as shown. In total, there should be 6 diamonds: 4 around the middle, and one each on the top and bottom of the egg.

Front (4): Draw a square inside each diamond, as shown.

Front (5): Draw a quarter of a star, with jagged edges, in each of the little squares, as shown.

When you have drawn all the lines in pencil that you wish to, go ahead to White.
