All you need to make them is...
- Watercolor paper
- Watercolor paints
- A paintbrush
- Gold paint pen
For both prints I used 3 or 4 tones of pink and red to paint a few rows of hearts. I just did it free hand, but you could always draw them out first with a pencil.
For one I just painted 2 light pink hearts and then outlined those hearts with the gold paint pen.
For the second one I waited until the watercolor dried and then wrote X's and O's inside the hearts with the gold paint pen.
The X's and O's print is my favorite. I just think it's so pretty and for some reason I am all about the XOXO this Valentine's. Anything I see with those letters is mine!
When the paint had dried, I put each in a frame. I just used a black frame, but I imagine they would look great in a gold frame!
How pretty is that finished product? The best part is this whole project took less than an hour. Watercolors and paint pens dry quickly and have about no clean up so it makes for a great little evening art project.
Do you like to use watercolors? Are you planning on making any decorations for Valentine's Day?
