Poetry Paintings

Make beautiful abstract color spray paintings using Liquid Watercolor on fabric and then add a poem on top. This fabric was sprayed, drizzled and also dripped with Colorations® Liquid Watercolor using trigger spray bottles and eye droppers. Let it dry, then add a second layer of details such as the hearts shapes you see here. (This last step is optional and can be eliminated with younger groups). Lastly, select a poem from a poetry book, or write your own poem, and use permanent markers or puffy paint to write a poem on top. Stretch around cardboard to mount, or hang from a dowel.
