Marker to Watercolor Technique!

These are super fun and easy Valentines!

Supplies Needed:
Watercolor Paper ( I like the 140 lb)
Watercolor Markers ( Crayola Bold pack works great!)
Small Brush
Black Acrylic Paint

Step 1: Cut your paper down into the size you want for your Valentines. (This makes for a great math lesson for kids who are learning division. Have them divide the total length of paper by 2 . Measure, mark your spot, and cut. Then divide the width by 2 and do the same) 

Step 2: Draw with washable marker. Don't fill your space completely in. You will fill with color once you add water.

Step 3: Add water with your small brush. Let dry.

Step 4: Once it's dry you can use some black acrylic paint to add some definition. I suggest adding a little bit of water to the acrylic paint to make it a tiny bit more flow-y.

And that's it! Easy Peasy Watercolor Valentines!
