Pre-K Valentine's Day Printing Project- Part Two

Pre-K artists completed their Valentine's Day printing projects in art class today.  Last week we made the large printed hearts using foam paper and printing ink.  Today they cut out their prints from last week and made a collage as a surface to print onto.  They could also include small hearts cut from decorative handmade paper.  

For today's printing project, we bent toilet paper rolls into heart shapes and then printed hearts all over the pages.  I added pearl medium and glitter to some of the paints and I added liquid soap to the white paint, so that the paint would form a bubble on the end of the tube to create a solid heart.  

We made our pieces of artwork on 8"X10" black mat board so that they will stand the test of time or are frame-ready.
