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. 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.Tombow Markers spayed with water for background with flower doodles on top -a fun summer art activity-myflowerjournal.comStep by step Tombow Markers spayed with water for background with flower doodles on top for a fun summer art activity-myflowerjournal.comAfter it was dry I did some flower doodles with a white Sharpie Paint Pen.

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)Step by Step Splattered Acrylic paint with flowers created with Tombow Markers sprayed with water for a fun summer art activity-myflowerjournal.com

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

  1. You always do such lovely work :) One of my grands is rather artistic / I need to bring him here when school’s out and have him see your art and try a bit. He’s only in first grade but you make it look easy and fun …he’d love it :)

  2. Just gorgeous I love the green spattered one. This would be a fun challenge but I am travelling in the middle of it and know it wouldn’t happen for me.

  3. I love ICAD! I want to join in on Facebook but couldn’t figure out how. I think I will have to go back tomorrow and try. It looks like so much fun! Have a great PPF and a wonderful weekend. Rasz #64
