Still no easel. I think I called on inspiration from both a post I'd seen on my friend's (awesome) blog (Yo-Yo Reggio) and my experiences in high school as a publicity officer. Ahh, now I'm recalling our campaign speech/rap:
Kristen & Bree for pub-li-ci-tee,
if you like our signs and you think they're RAD,
we'll be the greatest publicizers you've ever had:)
I used these (see above) olive oil spray cans from the grill to hold down the paper but O had a different idea for them...
After he would paint he would spray it and watch it sort of bubble up and then dissolve the paint. He went thru both cans, happily spraying every inch of the paper.
