Please, let me jump on the "I pinned it then I did it" bandwagon here with this project from this weekend. Let me start by saying - I could have read the actual blog first before just looking at the picture and jumping in, but what fun is that?! Yeah...
So anyway, here is the one I pinned, and here is the website you can find it on:
She had a 2-year-old and a 3-month-old. I was working with an almost 11-year-old and a 7-month-old. She used drawing paper, I used canvas... a large canvas to fit that large 11-year-old's hand onto. I probably should have painted the off-white canvas bright white, but I didn't.
Also, USE BRIGHT RED paint. I had red, which I thought would work, but the handprint ended up looking like a bloody handprint. Yeah, that wasn't making me happy, so I filled it in. Then mom said - you took all the wrinkles out! So, I got her to do it in white paint over the red. That didn't show up. So we did pink over the white/red and it showed up better, but WHATEVER. It really ended up being a mess.
Seriously? How can I possibly make this difficult? But here is my result:
I think I need to fatten up my "L" and I may still do that. The dots actually ran after I was done, so I don't know what to do with them. But regardless, this is what the kids are giving to their parents for Valentine's Day. :) So there, Pinned it and Did It. Woop woop!
