I must have been blind last night!! Those look great!
I usually do a collage heart project with my second grades. I start
with practicing how to cut out a heart, use that for a stencil to
draw the heart on the paper and then we watercolor the paper. I
introduce wet on wet technique for this painting. That gives us a
base to collage onto the following week.
I think I will try to tie in your ideas also. Great job!
