Looking for a DIY project that will reveal your inner artist? I am always looking for fun and easy projects that I can work on in my free time (and that will hopefully make me look like the fabulous artist I am not). I came across this idea on the Chez Larsson blog for Punch Art designs. Chose a color that suits you (or your children if that is who you are making it for) and that adds a pop of color. You can use white thumb tacks to make a speech bubble (try stenciling the bubble out first so that you have precise lines to work with). Wallah! You have made your very own work of art! Now all you have to do is use a dry erase marker and write quotes that you can change up once and a while. It may be a good idea to take pictures of each quote before erasing them and keep them in a scrap book for a rainy day.
