fathers day poster (thanks for the idea kelly)

this took hours because we did it on a piece of poster board instead of a small canvas....but it was fun......we used acrylic paint...and then i sprayed a layer of clear coat over it.......we think it came out fan.freakin.tastic!!!!!!!!!!LOL!!!!!!!!!






sarah added her special lettering touch to it!!!!!

we hung it in the garage, so as soon as he comes home from bike week....he will see it!!!!

Really cool!
I need to get to the craft store to get either a canvas or poster board! What a great cheaper option Colleen!
Sarah's lettering is excellent too!

Ahhhhhhhhhhh I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is awesome!!! What a great welcome home first thing!!!!!!!!!!

I saw this tape art stuff before getting all detailed with somehow smooshing the tape into things, like a tree, animal, etc. I'm not that talented, but after seeing these projects, we are going to have to at least try!

That looks so amazing. I want to do one now, but Josh would never color one color per area. He would just mix all the colors together so I am not sure how it would turn out.
