Elevate your childs art

My gorgeous friend, and fellow mummy, Monique told me about her brilliant solution to the great influx of works produced by her budding artists, aged 4 and 2. With too many to display and too precious to throw away, I'm loving this idea...



Totally inspired by the lack of space on the fridge closely followed by the desire to record those gorgeous creative milestones before they reach the bin, Monique has flexed her photoshopping skills and created these amazing collaborative digital collages of her favourite pieces which she has printed onto canvas and stretched ready to hang!




Instant art and priceless memories! It's brilliant Monique, thankyou for sharing these with us,

Love Nina xxx

The photoshopping does nothing but destroy the innocence of a child's original drawing.

Here is another great idea from a lovely artist in the states for those finger paintings: http://sarahjanestudios.com/blog/index.php/2009/03/05/make-your-own-gallery-templates/

Thank you Rosalind, that's another great idea! Gorgeous.

Anon, I disagree that it destroys the innocence, and I think it's so much better to have them cleverly collaged than not displaying them at all.

Love the idea of getting them onto canvas on the wall. I've been meaning to get some big photo frames so I can easily change what's hanging on the wall, and make it look more like art than butcher's paper sticky-taped to the walls.

I think they're fab...may give it a go once my girls' scribbles start looking more like objects and less like...er...scribbles...
