This is a lovely project for Valentine’s – making little love birds out of watercolor paper. The sweetest part is writing on the back of the birds the things you love. Isn’t gratitude a wonderful way to honor Valentine’s day? I will do this with my class when I return to school (hopefully Friday or Monday). I start by bringing the mood of awe and reverence for the many things we have in our lives that are wonderful – those scrumptious details of daily life!
Making the Birds: you will need watercolor paper, red and yellow paint, brushes, pink embroidery floss and gel medium (heavy glue).
Paint a wash of color on the watercolor paper. It is beautiful to add a tad of yellow.
