free art displayed at their level

Today was once again another rainy cool day here. So we ended up painting inside. Watercolors, paper & wood were all pulled out.
Noah got in on the painting fun (so much that he dumped his water glass on the floor) and painted the wall beside him.

The frames that I bought were the $1.00 frames with no glass that is sold at Michael’s. In my opinion they are the perfect frame for artwork at the kids level. A few weeks ago, I read on Mandy Gerth’s blog about Feed Your Soul, a site with free artwork downloads. Camille and I went to the site and she chose her favorite prints to put in our frames. We hung them in the playroom, just at their level. (Artists from left to right: Mandy Gerth, Stephanie Corfee, and Adrienne Vita)

One thing about these frames is you have to back it on your own. Camille & I decided to use the watercolor paper that they painted to back the prints. Looks fabulous even from the back, doesn’t it?!
