Homemade Watercolor Easter Card

Homemade Watercolor Easter CardHere’s an idea for a pretty Easter Card. Grid formats are fun to play with so feel free to make your own variation of this drawing.
1. I started by folding a piece of 8.5" x 11" watercolor paper in half. To make a quick grid without a lot of measuring, give each student a 1" square of thin cardboard. They are to place the square in each corner, and trace around it as shown in the first diagram.
2. With a ruler, the students then connect the lines to complete the border as shown.
3. Spring and easter details may be added.
4. After the drawing is complete with a pencil, the lines are traced with a black ballpoint pen and the shapes are painted with watercolor. I used Prismacolor watercolor pencils to make my sample.
