Lucy and I have been working on this project for awhile and we finally completed it!
Happy Father's Day, Zach!
|Lucy's artwork is on the top, and mine is on the bottom.|
I thrifted the frame a few months ago and this is what it looked like:
Oh, you're wondering "what is bread?" Don't worry, here is a close up.
I took the bread print out of the frame, washed the glass, sanded the wood frame, spray painted the frame white, and cut a white poster board to fit as the new mat.
I did a crayon drawing and then painted over it with watercolors to start the project.
Lucy used crayons in the color scheme I had already chosen to do my piece in, and then painted over the crayon drawing with watercolors for the final touch.
After both paintings dried I centered the two pieces where I wanted them on the white poster board mat and used clear photo corners to secure them in place. I reassembled the frame with the new artwork in it, and voila! A masterpiece!
|You can't stop at one! I pulled out a second crayon drawing of hers to work on while we were at it.|

|The final product.|
PS. This morning when Lucy was saying her morning prayer over her cereal and banana, this is what she said: "Father in Heaven, thank you for artwork and artwork. Name of Jesus Christ, Amen."
Music to my ears!
Love that girl.
