My kids' new playroom needed some art.  I wanted something Harry Potter-ish without it being super Harry Potter since that wasn't the theme of the room.  I absolutely love this quote from Harry Potter.  In the movie, Harry's mom whispers it to Harry right before she dies.  I use to snuggle my youngest when she was a baby and say it to her, too.  So, it is now immortalized in their playroom.

I started with a large thick sheet of watercolor paper from Hobby Lobby.  I applied watercolors in a gradient fashion.  On top, once all was dry, I wrote the quote on to the paper with pencil and then black acrylic paint over that.  Popped it into a frame and VIOLA!  ART!





Thanks for looking!

I love the watercolor background! This is so sweet, and perfect for a HP-fan's growing kid <3

 Sweet quote and so nicely done. It is a perfect reminder in a kids room.
