Watercolor Heart Art

Valentine's Day is next weekend, so why not create handmade Valentine cards to share with those you love?

Join me in this Kids Craft Hour tutorial and learn how to make brightly-colored watercolor heart art, using oil pastel/crayon and watercolor paints.

We'll be focusing on the card design below, but feel free to use any of the designs I created in the photos below. I'd love to hear which design is your favorite, so be sure to let me know by leaving a comment!

If you'd like, you are welcome to use this guide by Expressive Monkey while following along with my tutorial. While it was not created for this specific tutorial, I found it online and thought it may be a helpful visual guide.
