I was inspired by a lesson for kids that involved bubble art. Having completed the project myself with food coloring, I wanted a deeper color for my art journal lessons with upper grades.
I used Dawn dish soap, Dick Blick watercolors, and water. Made up a rich batch of colors to create bubble backgrounds. I started with yellows, mixed in some reds, and finished with oranges.
I think this will create a great background for art journal pages, and hopefully inspire the students to create rich artful pages.
