Art Pin Spin

Reader Submission for the Pinstrosiversary Challenge:
Being newly married and (thus) poor, my husband and I are always looking for really cheap date night ideas.  One thing we’ve been doing together lately is painting with watercolors.  I already had the paints from a college class I took years ago, a small pack of brushes was only about $5, and Santa was nice enough to get us both Watercolor paper pads for Christmas! 

I wanted to do something Valentines Day-ish, but wanted something cooler than just hearts all over my husband’s name.  So I drew from my Pinterest craft board:  I used this picture (created by LightandSpoon over on Etsy which no longer is for sale) 

And this picture I took the other day on my phone:

 And created This:

It’s nothing special really…  My 4th grade art skills really aren’t anything to brag about!  But it was nice to create something that didn’t exist before, and to spend time with my husband.
