DIY Summer Watercolor Pillows!

I am on a watercolor binge! Loving the sea blues and greens mingling together on a canvas...or a square of fabric... :)
Since I am absolutely in no way an artist, anyone can do this!
Watercoloring fabric would also be a fun thing for your little person to do as a summer project, then you could whip them up a little pillow for their room!
