Last month, you voted for us to use book pages in our Create with Me projects for this month. I immediately thought of Little Girlie’s room (Remember, she wanted a purple, monkey bedroom…) and wanted to create some artwork using the book Monkey and Me. I mean, how sweet are the pictures and how perfect would that be in her room?!
I knew that I was going to be ripping out some pages and just couldn’t bear the thought of doing that to a perfectly good book, so I ordered the book used for a couple dollars. And… I waited for it…and waited…and waited. Knowing this post was due, I finally had to give up waiting and think of Plan B.
I decided to press on and do a similar project for the playroom since I haven’t updated the gallery wall in years. I asked the kids if there was a book they would love to see the artwork on the wall and they requested Green Eggs and Ham. We are huge Dr. Seuss fans around here and I did grow up being called “Sam I am”, after all, so it was a natural choice for the wall!
I found that the first and last pages of the book were the same piece of artwork with no text on them and immediately knew that’s what I wanted to use. I could take out the very back page and not ruin the book at all! I simply ran a blade along the page as close to the spine as I could get and it came out cleanly!
Then, I popped it on some colorful scrapbook paper and framed it! Crazy, ridiculously, easy! So easy that I almost didn’t post this because it seemed too simple!
I think it looks so cute in our gallery and I love getting to have Dr. Seuss art on the wall!
And, wouldn’t you know, the Monkey and Me book came last night. Of course. 😉
Now, it’s your turn to decide what we use for next month’s challenge! Vote below!
