Watercolor Valentine's Day Art

This project came to me very spare of the moment. My kids and I were spending time together painting at the table when I decided to make some of my own Watercolor Valentine’s Day Art to bring a little festivity to our home for the up coming holiday. This project really shows that you don’t need great expensive materials to create fun art to display.
Here is what I had to work with…

I used plain old boring computer paper, my child’s watercolor set, a broken white crayon and dull scissors. Nothing fancy here.

First, I drew a design on the paper with the white crayon. I knew I wanted to display my finished art in a 4×6 frame, so I drew accordingly.
Next, I brushed the desired colors over the crayon markings to reveal the hidden image and left them to dry.
Finally, the pictures were cut out to fit the frames and displayed for all to enjoy.
For what I had to work with, including my poor artistic skills, I love the finished product! Do you decorate your home for Valentine’s Day?
