Does your child's art ever pile up over months and months? You don't have the space or money to frame every piece and hang it up, but you don't have the heart to throw it away? Well here is an inexpensive and space economical idea that my daughter and I came up with.
We bought a large canvas on sale at our local craft store and I let her just go at it painting shapes on it with regular old bottled acrylics. She had a blast and the only rule was to not leave any white.
Then she chose which art pieces that she wanted to 'display' on the canvas. We cut them all out and decoupaged them directly onto the painted canvas. To finish it off, since mod podge tends to be a bit tacky (and sometimes collects a lot of dust) we covered it with a coat of clear semi-gloss lacquer.
She is so proud of her masterpiece and is going to display it at a church talent show this weekend.
The bonus for me is that I have a new LARGE piece of art for my kids 'art wall' in my office, and it didn't break the bank!!
