This is a great idea for any sort of DIY artwork: trace a simple graphic onto three canvases, and paint. So much more esthetically pleasing than if you were to just trace and paint onto one canvas. Plus i love the whale idea for a little boy room :)
Rock Photo Holders - (using floral craft wire) Tightly loop one end of the wire around a stone; then wrap the wire around itself to secure. Stand the remaining length of wire upright, twisting the top inch or so into a flattened spiral circle (as shown).
