1) Locate the centre of the page - draw a dot with a pencil.
2) Still using the pencil, draw 6 straight lines through the centre.
3) Still using the pencil, draw "happy face" curved lines in alternate sections.
4) Colour in the sections with marker, alternating one coloured, one blank (these were my magenta sections). Use a pencil crayon (in the same magenta colour) to shade the edges of the blank sections.
5) Using the pencil again, draw "sad face" curved lines in the left over sections.
6) Colour in these sections with marker, alternating one coloured, one blank (these were my green sections). Use a pencil crayon (in the same green colour) to shade the edges.
7) Trace over all pencil lines (straight and curved) with a black marker.
8) Stand back and admire. :)
It also makes a show-stopping bulletin board display!!!
