A Fun Summer Art Activity

Are you looking for a fun summer art activity that uses markers and a spray bottle?  I’ve been going through my supplies and trying some new things. I decide to experiment with my Tombow Markers

Colorful backgrounds and flower doodles

I found I can make beautiful backgrounds by coloring cards with Tombow Markers then mist them with water and let them dry. I think you could use this technique with any water soluble marker. The cards curl up when they are wet, but flatten as they dry.  Here are some cards I created with step by step photos.

After it was dry I did some flower doodles with a white Sharpie Paint Pen.

Splattered paint with flowers

For this one I started by splattering green acrylic paint on the card. After the splattered paint was dry I added the flowers with the Tombow Markers then sprayed them with water and let them dry. (Splatter Paint Tutorial)

It is interesting how you can use your art supplies in a new way to create something with a different look!

Take a look at my new website!

In August 2020 I started reading online to my grandchildren, who live hundreds of miles away. A few years and over a thousand books later we are still reading together on FaceTime. I created readaloudgrandma.com to help other grandparents that want to have a rewarding experience reading aloud to children they love!
