This may just be one of the easiest and most fun “painting” to make, because you don’t even have to “paint”! Love blowing bubbles? Read on.

When I first stumbled upon an image of bubble paint hydrangeas on Discount School Supplies website, I just knew I HAVE to try it! I had so much fun and made the paintings in 2 ways because I don’t want to stop!

First, the bubble paint recipes- use paint and dish soap that are labeled Non Toxic !!

You can buy bubble paint, but it’s very easy to make your own! I tested a few mixes, and the one I am really happy with is 1 part (by volume) acrylic paint, 1 part dish soap, and 2 parts water. Mix them up, that’s it!

Find a dish to mix the paint. Mine are about 6″x9″, and 2″ deep.

The paper I use here are these card stock, which hold up great! Now let the fun begin!

When you get a clump of fat bubbles ( I don’t need to explain how to do that right?) take a piece of paper and press it onto the bubbles. You can repeat a couple of times to get the desired shapes and colors!

A shallow dish works well because the bubbles can come up easily, and when we press the paper onto the bubbles, the paper won’t touch the rim of the dish and cause smudging.

I used 2 colors here, one dish has rose pink, the other purple.

For one of the paintings, I painted some watercolor leaves in various shades of green, cut them out and glued them around the blossoms.

The other painting was completed by adding stems and painting a few leaves with watercolor.

These brushes are great for all kinds of painting . I like using those with a nice pointed tip for watercolors, they are great for washes, and for finer details.

I felt the leaves need to pop a bit more, so I used a pen and added some rich details in both paintings, super easy though, just draw some lines!
