HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN MOTHER'S DAY WATERCOLOR ART
Show Mom how much you care with this super easy watercolor art for Mother’s Day! This project goes from start to finish in about 20 minutes. It makes a beautiful gift straight from the heart!
For this project, I gathered a few supplies I had on hand:
- 8×10 canvas
- Carbon Paper
- Heart Cookie Cutter
- Copper Leaf Marker
- Paint brushes
We lost our images sorry. If you make this, please email us your pictures.
I printed some words in a beautiful font and cut them out and laid them on my canvas where I wanted them. Then using a large heart-shaped cookie cutter as a pattern, I drew a heart lightly with a pencil.
I put a piece of carbon paper under the words and traced them onto the canvas with a pencil.
Using a copper leaf marker, I filled in the traced letters. I would have rather used gold, but I didn’t have that in my supplies. You can pick up these markers at most craft stores.
The heart that I drew was a little dark, so I erased it until it was barely there. That way when I painted over it, I wouldn’t be able to see the pencil outline. This worked really well.
I didn’t use any fancy watercolors. These were leftover from one of my kids from school.
Using random colors, I just started painting mini flowers all over the heart shape outline. Believe me when I say, I’m no painter, but this was totally easy to do.
Framed, this makes a beautiful gift for Mom!
Wishing my own incredible Mom, and all of you Moms out there, a very special Mother’s Day!
