Watercolor Hearts

Make beautiful hearts from liquid watercolor paint-

Valentines Day is coming and I wanted to do something with hearts. This is a great easy project with high impact. You will need two watercolor papers per person. Using liquid pour watercolors, wet each paper and pour cool colors on one sheet and warm on the other sheet. Sprinkle salt on the freshly painted paper before it dries for an interesting effect. When completely dry, cut hearts out with special pattern scissors. Mount on the left over paper. You can use other peoples extra paper to make more than one level of hearts. I like to fold the hearts in half so that they are raised off the background a bit. Glue down the hearts by putting glue on the seam of the fold. You can also use mounting squares to raise the hearts off the background too.
