That I decided to frame it all in a gallery grouping for the dining room. It turned out great!!
To do this, I collected a bunch of frames I already had-most of them were already black. Sprayed the one's that weren't black with a few light coats of black spray paint. Made mattes for half of them because they had none. Put the girls' art in and voile la! The arrangement itself took longer than putting the art together!
I laid it all out on the living room floor and moved it, walked away, tweaked it, walked away...until I had it just right. Then I heard the bus and snapped a quick pick of it and picked it up, so the girl's would step on it when they walked in.
I got into the dining room with it to hang it, flipped the camera on to view the pic and it was gone...so I started over in the dining room. I laid it on the floor in there and snapped the pic...this one took :) Plus, I could easily measure it to find where it needed to be placed on the wall!
Here it is on the floor:
For some of the 3D art-like the fan and the picture made out of beans (and my @ sign)-I just put white paper in the frame and hot glued the art to the glass.
Because Audrey just won't make anything for me yet (she's only 8 months!) I painted her feet yellow and had her "print" on some paper for me, then I stenciled SMILE over it with hot pink! She also got her hand painted hot pink and made some hand prints for me too! I can only imagine what her little mind was thinging while I was doing this!
