This summer has been a busy one! We started off with VBS. We went to Houston to visit my family for a week. We have been swimming and Monster is taking swimming lessons! We spent a week without hubby because he went to camp with his 5th grade boys. I have been trying to find ways to keep Monster busy too this summer so he is not bored! I have not crafted a whole lot but I did get one craft in that I wanted to share. Since we are about to begin our first year of homeschooling, I wanted a place that was designed just for all of Monster's art work he will be creating! So this is what I came up with.
I started with this large brown frame I had ( I actually have two but waiting on the other one)
Painted it red... this took SEVERAL COATS OF PAINT!! This was maybe two coats in.Plus I still had to do the insides!
I also used a small black frame I had.
This is what I did! So far this is all that we have hanging. I promise the "white" canvas has something on it! We did bubble painted but it just wasn't as bright as I hoped.
I used string to put behind the frame and just hang the art with clothespins.
This one is still empty. I am waiting on Monster to make something for here!
So this wall I am hoping at the end of our first year will be full! I have tons of art projects planned for our first year of homeschooling! I think above it I am going to use vinyl and post " Monsters Masterpieces" :)
