Easy as pie...

My son made an acrylic painting a few years back and titled it "Zero Gravity".
I thought it was so clever and cute that I (of course), immediately
stole it and hung it in our office.
recently he decided he wanted a it in his room.

He thinks he wants his own art work in his room??

The solution...
We scanned it into the computer and printed it out on nice photo paper.

He wanted to hang it over his bed so I needed to go an earthquake safe route. (i.e. no glass.)
We bought a cheep canvas and painted the edges blue.
I used Mod Podge and a paintbrush to spread sticky wonderful-ness
all over the back of the picture and stuck it to the canvas.

We flipped it over and stapled a felt ribbon right to the canvas.
He has a copy of his own art 
hanging in his own bedroom.

And I still have my original in the office!! :):)

Your son is an artist.;) Beautiful and what a great solution for the display as well.
Hope all is well dear Holly, I have been somewhat an absent blogger as of lately as I am enjoying life off line way too much.;)
Thank you for your recent visit and such endearing words.;))
