Yoobi Mini Masters Painting 101: Brushstrokes Bouquet for Mother's Day!

Lynn Lilly from @craftboxgirls joins Yoobi Mini Masters to teach you kid-friendly painting techniques to create an easy floral vase masterpiece for Mother's Day. At the end, you’ll have a colorful painting that mom will treasure forever! Follow along with Lynn’s Yoobi Mini Masters class live on Yoobi’s IGTV here!

What you’ll need:

  • A white surface for your painting
    • Canvas, cardstock, construction paper, etc.
  • A pencil
  • Yoobi washable paint brush pens (or any paint and brushes you have at home!)
  • Glitter glue
  • A thin paint brush 

Step 1: Draw your outline. Use a pencil to lightly sketch out a vase. Make sure to leave a few inches from the bottom for the table cloth. Add some scalloped, curved lines for the top rim of your vase. Draw a horizontal line halfway down the vase to mark your tabletop line. 

Step 2: Fill in the vase. Use a yoobi paint pen to color in your vase. *Tip: Have a piece of scrap paper handy so you can test out the flow and color of your paint before marking your canvas!

Step 3: Add a tablecloth. Use a different yoobi paint pen and color in the rectangle of your tablecloth.  If you want to add some texture, dollop some glitter glue along the paint and use a dry paintbrush to blend the two together. 

Step 4: Plant your flowers! Use the rest of your yoobi paint pens to add flowers into your vase. Create a mix of different shapes and colors to give your bouquet a unique look!  *Tip: Lightly squeeze a green paint pen for a thin stem. The harder you squeeze, the thicker your lines will be.

Step 5: Finish with the details. Now that the base layer of your tablecloth is dry, take a white paint pen and add a grid design for a checkered look!
