Patterns with masking tape

Lay out a grid of masking tape onto paper. Use water color to fill in the squares. Let colors mix and blend for nice effects. You can also sprinkle salt into the wet paint. When the paint dries, remove the masking tape. These areas will be white, but with interesting borders. You can scan the finished pattern to make wrapping paper, cards, and other products.

Design by Ronnie, age 9.
