For some reason kids and water colour just work. When my three year old makes water colour art it always looks great, so if you are investing the time to make a special piece of art for one of custom art tea towels or cushions then we highly recommend something in water colour. This scribble art project is fun, unique and creative, my husband and son had some fun with it just last weekend and the results were fantastic.
So let’s get started...
Step 1: Gather supplies.
1 water colour set (any cheap kind will do, ours is from Ikea).
1 grey lead pencil
A couple of good quality paint brushes
A water colour pad
Step 2: Choose your shape.
Decide if you are going to make a tea towel or a cushion. Cushions work best in a square format and tea towels work best in rectangles.
Cut your rectangle to a square if making a cushion.
Step 3: Create your scribble pattern.
Scribble some lines across the page so that a mix of big and small shapes are created (if your little one is too young you can do this part for them).
Step 4: Paint with colour!
Paint in the sections with different colours. The more colours the better!
Step 5: Photograph your work.
A mobile camera or regular camera are fine to use. iPhones allow you to crop your image, but we can do that for you if needed.
Step 6: Select your product and upload your work.
Make sure you include any basic editing requirements you might need, you can also include a date and a name in the right corner.
Step 7: You're done! Await for happy mail to arrive.
