watercolor knot art - house of earnest

I’m such a fan of affordable art.  When it comes to making your own, I think it’s so so easy to get something beautiful as long as you keep it simple.  These knots are about as easy as they come, but are reminiscent of sea and surf and just perfect to lighten up your walls this summer.  All it takes is some watercolor paper and a cheap set of watercolors (nothing fancy here!).

ONE trace over the knot template lightly with a pencil in the middle of your paper. TWO go back over your pencil tracing with black watercolor paint. THREE let them dry completely before framing.

Stacking the frames in a grouping really stands out, but just one watercolor knot in a wall of other photos would be beautiful as well.  I love the simplicity of it and think the outcome is just as wonderful as anything you could buy.

Would you try this? Maybe a gem outline would be really fun and funky too?  Tell me what you think!
