Watercolor Doodle

Been awhile since I wrote last.  Things have been busy... but I have missed doing my crafts.  I need creative outlets!!  So, here is what I did last week.  I got this idea from an old neighbor I had.  It is actually a lot of fun.  This is for anyone who likes to doodle.
Here is what you need:
Watercolor paper
Watercolor paints
Paint brushes in various sizes
Thin point sharpie markers

Mix your watercolors in the colors you want.  Then paint designs, stripes, any abstract looking thing.  Let it dry.

Take your sharpie and trace the natural lines where the colors meet.

Now comes the really fun part.  Inside the shapes made by the lines, draw pictures, make designs, write words.  Just do whatever you feel like.  There is no wrong way to do this.

Now frame it, and you have an original piece of artwork hanging on your wall.
