Neurographic art is a new and exciting way to create unique and beautiful artwork.
It's a bit like the scribble drawings from infant school with lots of circular loops and turns. Colouring the larger spaces with crayons or coloured pencils.
Nowadays, it's used in therapy as a way to reduce stress and promote a sense of calm and relaxation. It's claimed to improve motor function and sleep as the process relaxes the brain.
For card makers it's a technique we can use to make a one of a kind card. It's simple and easy to do.

To have a go.....
How far you go is up to you - Your design is finished when you feel it's finished.
As the image becomes more complex the design begins to look a bit like the neural pathways of the brain.
My next card was much more organic.
I used a background from my stash made from Distress sprays.
Again, I used a sharpie to create the main lines and then created circles and ovals within the lines.
After I rounded off all the edges I coloured some of the shapes with metallic watercolour and a white gel pen.
Like my previous creation I added dots for more interest.
I was starting to get into the flow with my third card!
This time I used a background painted with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolour set as I love the bright intense colours.
I added a combination of dots and pen lines in black, white and gold.
The card was completed with a simple "Smile" die cut in gold card.
There are lots of different way to create your neurographic art. Just do what feels right for you and add your own individual take to the process.
Totally hooked on this technique I used it in my art journal. So relaxing as you have to take your time.
