Laynee's Art Board

If you've been reading my blog any length of time, you know I have one of the most precious great granddaughters in the world!!
When she comes to Juju's house, she loves to color and draw.  We're not to the painting stage yet but it's close.
She is so intent when she is working with her art supplies.
So, I decided I needed to make a board from which to hang her art work.  (The refrigerator and office door were both full)
I went to Lowe's and bought a pine board that measured 11 1/2" (why do they call that a 12" board?) by 4 feet long.  The nice gentleman at Lowe's cut it in two for me, so I had two pieces that measured 11 1/2" x 24" long. So you really have enough to make two of these if you want.
I painted it a bright aqua and then glued cork board (you buy in a roll at HL or Michaels) to the bottom part.  I just used it the size it came. 
I then added scrapbook letters spelling out "Laynee's Works of Art!" to the top. 
 It still needed something.
  So I cut a cardboard house out of a box and covered it with sheet music using Mod Podge.  I added a scrapbook paper roof and chimney.
It still needed more.
I dug around and found the little wooden picket fence and hot glued it across the bottom.  I took a spray of red flowers and hot glued them along the fence at varying places. 
I used the larger push pins and hot glued an aqua paper flower on top of it to hold her art work.
So, we will put this in Pop's office because that's where she likes to create.
I think she has real potential, don't you?
Till next time, Judy
