To Be Simply Happy: Water Color Art Project

Water art is such the trend these days, and I am equally a sucker for the beautiful pieces I have seen … and those we have created!  So, when I happened to be walking the isles of Michael’s the other day I saw a pack of water colors and the exclamation mark could be seen in my eyes.  I thought, hmm … I’ll save this cute activity for a rainy day that needs a spark of sunshine – well, that day was today!

A and I were looking for something we could do that didn’t require a lot of materials AND could be art we may want to use on our inspirational boards.  This water color art project was the perfect activity.

MATERIALS:

  • White paper (I honestly used printer paper … but be bold if you want to try other paper stocks)
  • Water colors
  • A small container with water in it
  • A few paint brushes or sponge(s) … (I only say a few because we did this together)
  • A table surface (We did this activity on our dining room table, but I am sure any hard surface is fine – just get comfortable and have fun!)

Step 1. Draw on your paper with whatever creation comes to mind.  Enjoy mixing up colors 🙂

Step 2. Once you’re finished drawing, dip your paint brush into the water and brush it onto your colored artwork.  I noticed rubbing my brush in circular motions helped diffuse the colors more.

Step 3. Once you’re pleased with the water design on the paper, simply put it aside and let it dry for about 30 minutes.  And … VOILA!
