Your Sharpie Style, from Harper Collins Publishers, has clear and easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions take you through the basics of working with a variety of Sharpie pens.I decided to do a Watercolor Pillow on page 74 using my Sharpie pens. It was super easy to do and a lot of fun. We followed the instructions for making a watercolor effect on page 13. We just made some fun swirls and then painted over them with rubbing alcohol. The result? I think we made a very unique piece of art Caitlin can use in her room! Anohter fun craft we recently finished was a DIY Painted Backpack. It was super easy and super cute!
