You don't have to be a brilliant artist to produce pleasing artwork to display around your home. This is just one quick simple idea that anyone can do.

Total Time: 1 hour


  • 1 page from an old book
  • 1 black marker
  • watercolour paints
  • 1 paintbrush
  • scissors
  • 1 frame


  1. Decide what picture you are going to draw. Use adult colouring pages for inspiration if you can't think what to do.
  2. Draw your picture using the marker pen. Remember to keep it simple and practise on a plain piece of paper first if you want to.
  3. You don't need expensive paints to do this. A cheap children's water colour palette will do.

  5. Again keep it simple by only choosing a few colours.
  6. Your artwork will look more professional if you make it slightly imperfect.

  8. Once it is dry use the glass from the frame to mark the size.
  9. Cut the book page to fit the frame.

  11. Doesn't it look good?
