Felt Tip Watercolour Tree

We enjoyed watching how the colours from the old felt tip pens used in this craft spread, and the resultant picture is very pretty. Make sure you use a good thick paper though, or the result might be disappointing.

Felt Tip Watercolour Tree

You will need:

Old felt tips in reds, yellows, oranges and greens (this is a good craft to use up the last bits of ink)
Brown pen
Thick paper

Instructions:

Paint a cloud shape (which will be the "leaves" of your tree) with water onto the top half of your paper.

Colour in the cloud with the old pens.  The inks will run together.

When the cloud shape is completely dry, use the brown pen to draw on a trunk and branches.
