Just like any other parent , my kids have a ton of artwork sent home on a weekly basis .
I love to see what type of creations came to mind but let’s be real …. where do you put it ?
I hate to just file it away in a box without showing them off 😒 . This is my Mom’s fault because my mom did a great job of displaying our artwork as kids. What does any creative blogger do ? Go to Pinterest and look for some ideas .
I found this pin
I like the concept but wanted to swap up the quote because I love the idea of supporting a child’s imagination .
Which led me to ….
Xoxo Tilly !
This is how I got there !
The products I used in this craft are found in my DIY Crafting Mini Haul
I also used paint pens that I purchased from the craft store .
Since I had the wooden plank cut when I got it , the next step was painting it . The paint I purchased already has a primer and this was a true shortcut for me .
I struggled with painting it until I found two additional boards to lift the wood off the ground . *do not use plastic bags …. now that I think of it … that was not the best idea lol *
I let the paint dry overnight so I had plenty of time to search until I found the Einstein quote 😉.
Next , I penciled the quote in ….( this was just to give me an idea of the spacing )
Once I figured out my spacing and alignment, I started to trace the quote with paint pens. – I recommend paint pens because these are easier to write with.
Once I got that traced and let it dry ( very fast drying results with the paint pens ) I was able to search for some “Little Picasso” artwork 😍 The Little said her art work is exclusive but the Young One just kept handing me paintings.
How cute !
