Book-Page Cityscape

  • Book (that you are okay with tearing apart- I chose one from our donation pile)
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Watercolor paper
  • Watercolors
  • Paint brush
  • Water
  • Glue stick
  • Markers

Step 1: Cut your book pages into strips of different widths and heights to represent buildings in a cityscape. Spread them out as you choose how tall and wide to cut them, but do not attach them to the paper yet. 

Step 2: Using watercolors, paint a background. To do this, you must consider what time of day it is, if there are other buildings around, what part of the world you are in, and any other influential factors. 
(Your project should show more effort and detail than the one below. That is simply a quick example.)

Step 3: You can splatter some water color on your buildings by dipping your brush in water and then the paint without wiping any water off before splattering. Try not to splatter the paint all over things other than your buildings though!

Step 4: Once the background is dry, glue down your buildings and add more detail!
