Modern Artwork from Kid's Art!


If you have toddlers and like to do creative projects,  you've probably dealt with unwanted "help" from little hands. My daughter loves to paint and draw and glue and cut and...help momma! And, sometimes it's nice to plan projects around her help, instead of waiting for nap time! This Modern Watercolor Art project was one of those plans. We worked together and ended up with a beautiful bit of home decor! 

Here's how it's done: 

Kid's Art into Modern Watercolor Art

Supplies: 
Pretty 11x17 Frame
1-3 pages of 8.5x11" watercolor paper 
1 pages of 9x12" art paper 
watercolor pencils
paintbrushes and water
2" circle cutter
glue stick
cute kid


1) Lay out watercolor paper and pencils. Let child do her thang. 2) after she's created her art with the pencils, let her "paint" over the pencils with water and a paintbrush 3) let the artwork dry completely 4) use the 2" circle cutter and cut as many circles as possible from each page (I got 20 circles/page). 5) grab your 9x12 paper and arrange the circles in your pattern of choice (random would also be fun!) 6) use a glue stick to attach each circle in place 7) frame the artwork and display! I chose to mount our artwork on top of mat board for a modern look.  


As it turned out, I only used 20 of the 60 circles I cut from our three pages of art. Looks like I'll be coming up with another project soon! :)


Do you love to create with your little helpers? My daughter is crazy about painting...and, you know what? I love it too!

  7. Hello Emily. This is DIY Modern Artwork is so cool! What a great idea and getting kids involved in projects like this is so fun. Thanks for stopping by BeBetsy and letting us know about the private setting on the video. We'd like to blame that on someone else but we there is no one else! Haha... we changed the setting if you are dying to see Denise's hands whip up the drink while the wind wails in the background. It's worth checking out! :)
    Thanks much and come on back when you can! All the best ~ Sharon and Denise
