If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen that Lilly received a "paint with water" Lisa Frank coloring book for her birthday. I had waaaaaaaaaaaay too much fun painting one of her pages (much to her chagrin) and then thought- I bet I could make my own drawing for Lilly to paint. So I did.
You can too:
1. Get some thick paper (I used printer paper and while it worked- it also wrinkled).
2. Draw whatever you want using a sharpie and let it dry. I found that big shapes with plenty of space between the lines makes it easier to fill in later.
3. Fill in with water color pencils. In my experience I found it's better to do shapes that are closer together rather then bigger. I used lots of different shapes and lines so it would be more fun to look at too.
4. Give it to a kid with some water and a paint brush. Lilly and I discovered that using a smaller paint brush is better and that dabbing the brush on a paper towel so it isn't soaked helps too. Too much water on the page caused it to rip.
And that's it! Now you can hang your one of a kind kiddo made art! If you DIY leave a link in the comments so I can check it out!
