Because I'm a noodle and forgot to buy watercolors (and I feared the possibilities of an epic tragedy using acrylics), we had to improvise. I drew on the basic idea of the picture with black crayon, then we soaked the paper, and ran different colors of markers over different areas. Then Baby J "painted" the colors, effectively spreading them out and mixing them together. We were impatient (ie, I was impatient), so we dried the paper with the hairdryer (and "vacuumed" each other, too), then added more details with crayons.

Last step, fitting the paper back into the old matting, and picking a place in the playroom to hang it!
|I originally intended for a sunny day, but Baby J wanted rain; sunshower it is!|
