The project included the following steps:
1. Use masking tape to create a simple design on a piece of watercolor paper. It could be strips of tape in various sizes in whatever configuration or tape could be shaped to form a person’s name.
2. Use assorted materials—anything but a paintbrush—to apply watercolor paint over the entire surface. Apply 2-3 colors using various materials.
4. Edge around the taped areas with colored pencils if desired.
5. Remove the tape.
