The Elephant of Surprise: Art for Non-Artists: Easy Doily Watercolor. This would be sooo cute for a journal page or wrapping paper. And you could probably use the now-painted doilies in something too . <<< DID YOU JUST SAY ELEPHANT
Use school glue gel, salt, & liquid watercolor on watercolor paper. The glue makes the colors rise from the paper and the salt creates a 'starburst' look. Rubbing alcohol on wet water color is cool too.
