This weekend I got the chance to hang out with my niece Marley. My sister was working on some of her book illustrations and Marley was really wanting to help her paint them so I decided to draw her a picture she could help paint on.
She asked for a pink and purple girly kitty. So it had to be Hello Kitty! I am a huge Hello Kitty fan so I was totally ok with this :).
I sketched the outline of Hello Kitty, then outlined it with Sharpies.
For the coloring I used Water Color Pencils. I had never used them before but they are really fun.
You just color in an area and then use a wet paint brush and the colors bleed like painting with water colors.
The best part about this is that Marley helped me paint this picture and she had a lot of fun with it. It will be hanging in her room.
This is a fun activity to do with kids that also has good results!
I will be linking up with some of these parties!
