You will need:
- a large frame
- posterboard or watercolor paper
- masking tape
- water colors
You need a heavier kind of paper for this project so you can peel the masking tape off of it when you are done. I used the matte side of a piece of poster board and peeled slowly and it worked fantastically!
Measure the size of your frame and cut your posterboard to size. Using masking tape mark off what you want left white when you are done with the watercolor. We went with the word luck.
Staring from the left fill in the entire poster board with rainbow colors. Make sure you paint all the way to the top and all the way to the bottom and around the masking tape letters. Allow the watercolor to dry completely and then slowly peel off the masking tape, revealing white poster board underneath.
I framed the watercolor and it sits in the middle of our mantel at the moment. I love that we made it together and my daughter is SO proud of it!
