Bleeding Tissue Heart Craft

Bleeding Tissue Valentines Heart Craft for Preschoolers

I am super excited to share this art/craft with you today! It's a media I have wanted to trial for such a long time. Now the light is finally visible at the end of the tunnel after having the twins - we are able to enjoy more time crafting. I am so pleased about this!
I can't tell you how much I don't miss all that bottle feeding! 
If you follow us over on Instagram you will know we are always out and about, doing something together as a family. If we're not out and about we are crafting and getting messy.

Today's art can be used for anything. You can theme it, you can have it as a free choice activity. You and the children are going to love it!!

Bleeding Tissue Valentines Heart Craft for Preschoolers

Take your sheet of card. You could use paper but I wouldn't recommend it as it will be more liable to tears and rips. Card will be much more sturdy and will help prevent this from happening. 
Take your black pen - we used a sharpie marker. Make sure you have protected surfaces if you are planning on using a marker too, as depending on the thickness of your paper/card - it may just go all the way through! Draw patterns all over your paper. Today we went along with the heart theme. Not only because hearts are just fun to draw but Valentines Day will soon be here! Eeeek! 

Once your design is complete - tear or cut up some bleeding tissue paper. For this process to work you will need to make sure you get this tissue paper - Bleeding Tissue UK / Bleeding Tissue US.
Cover your paper in beautiful coloured tissue.

Try to cover as much of your page as possible so that more colour bleeds onto your design. Use a water squibber to wet the tissue. We got ours from - Early Years ResourcesWatch before your very eyes as the colour bursts out onto the paper! Before you do this step, do make sure you have a suitable protector under your paper as the colour can stain surfaces.

Leave to dry for a little while before peeling away all the tissue paper. If the paper is still damp, take care not to rip your drawing! Leave them to completely dry. We left ours overnight.

Lets take a took at this Bleeding Tissue Art being created by me and my lovely 5 year old:

There we have it a beautiful way to create gorgeous art work, which uses a completely different technique.
