Before I get into this DIY watercolor Valentine project, here’s a little background of how it got created.
I started testing out my new watercolor paints and pens I got for Christmas at a family party. Don’t worry I socialized too! I just couldn’t hold back the excitement of my new gift and had to play with it right away. Tis’ what Christmas is all about.

However, I really like those brushes for these reasons.
I liked the colors I was using, but I wasn’t a huge fan of how it was turning out. I pictured it transitioning smoothly and looking like how the artists on Instagram make it look.
So I left my painting and started working on other types of doodles.
The crafty feelings were starting to build and my mind was thinking of how I could use this for a card. Then, I thought they could be used as little notes around the apartment for my husband. And voila this project was made.
I know it’s nothing special but I loved making it. I couldn’t wait to show Chris. I wanted to wait until Valentine’s Day, but then he did some pretty great stuff (the dishes, the laundry, cleaned the house). So I couldn’t hold off anymore.
Even if your art doesn’t look the way you expected, turn it into something. Maybe you’ll like it, maybe you still won’t. But it can be a simple reminder to your spouse or kid that you love them. The bonus is when you see them smile. And I’d do anything just to see his smile.
This gesture is great for someone who has the Love Language of Words of Affirmation. Or maybe it can serve as an idea if you’re just looking for a new way to tell him you appreciate him.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
