Children's Book Wall Art

I created this book art when decorating my son's farm bedroom. Since we went with a down on the farm theme, I wanted to incorporate some of his favorite books in artwork.

First, I color photocopied his favorite book (front cover only) at Kinkos: size 8-1/2 x11 size or 11x14. Second, buy a pre-stretched canvas board slightly bigger than the photocopy. Third, paint background with the matching colors of the picture or paint one color. Let dry. Glue photo copy down on canvas. Dry again. Put picture hooks on back and hang up in bedroom. Costs less than $6 per art work and only 1 hour to make. With coupons, it's even cheaper. Have fun! By Kerry from Flat Rock, MI

I too would love to see a photo if that is possible. It sounds great, and what a neat idea.
