Create simple and beautiful artwork for your child’s room that features watercolor painting and your child’s initial, too!
- Contact Paper
- watercolor paper
Draw and cut-out your child’s initial from the Contact Paper. I drew mine free-hand, but you could also print out a large letter to trace. Stick the initial onto the watercolor paper – I cut our paper to 8″x10″ to fit in some frames we had. Make sure you give the contact paper a good rub so the watercolors won’t seep underneath it during painting.
Let your little artist go to work painting the entire paper. The more colors, the better! If your colors aren’t looking bright enough, encourage your child to “stir” the brush in the paint for a count of 5. That will load the brush really well and give nice, bright colors.
Let your painting dry, then peel off the Contact Paper. Voila! Beautiful artwork to brighten and personalize your child’s room. Have fun!
