Make Your Own Valentines Cards!

This is a little post, inspiring you to make your own Valentines day cards. I am so not a "card" person. I always make fun of my boy friend because he loves store-bought cards. Him and his whole family does. They love receiving store bought cards! This I think is so funny, because we, the Goswicks, are the exact opposites. Sometimes we don't even read the dang card because it's so generic! It's like they (Hallmark) did the job for you! I always say, just write me a letter on notebook paper because, in my opinion, its so much better :).   Not to be dissin on the "card" people, I love you all, but I making your own means so much more! Plus, this is so easy...even to those who think they can't paint or make anything creative. With this, I'll prove you wrong :).

So here you go. It's kinda self-explanatory but have at it. 

Here's what you'll need:
Watercolor Paper
Watercolors
Brush
Acrylic Paint *optional
Creativity!


Let them drip! 


Here, I just went back and am painting the hearts with acrylic paint, just to outline them a little bit, to give them more of a Pop! 
Hope this gives you some motivation to make your own Valentines day cards this year! 

xoxo
