Family wall art

Ok, I have had this idea of my family making something together to hang on our wall. Schneider Family Art. I had a stretchy sheet that I had used for another project so we cut it to size and then I have been wanting to use watered down acrylic paint because it leaves a fun effect on fabric. (which I observed in my favorite blog http://www.filthwizardry.com/ )

We needed a place to create our art so ..tacked down the fabric to the kitchen table. :)
We used permanent markers to draw with.
I had an idea of what I wanted but tried to stay open since my artists were 7 and 4.

I had my moments of wanting my kids to do it a certain way
 and then I just let those go and we had a lot of fun and truly ended up with
something that all of us helped with

Here we are adding the paint to the fabric.
We just outlined what we drew and the watered down paint added a fun effect.


Here is the master piece.
I really enjoyed this and would like to get some fun material and do one on my own sometime but I bet it won't be as much of a keeps sake as this one. :)
This is an IKEA find that I have had for some time.
Great idea for hanging fabric. So we hung our
'Schneider Family Art'


I want to fill this wall with more
 Schneider Family Art this year. :)
The pic. is not great in color.
However it is very colorful and is a great representation of our family now.

Blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a river bank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit."  Jer. 17:7-8
