Canvas Childrens Footprint Art

 

*** In an effort to move my DIY projects and get rid of my old web site "Scrappin A Moment" I will be copying posts over to this blog and when that domain expires I will be done with it and focus just on Closet of Free Samples. So please ignore the Scrappin A Moment watermark as that`s what my old blog was called.

 

This project was inspired by one I had seen on Pinterest and decided I’d give it a go! I wanted to capture the footprints while Jace was still a newborn, under a month in age, so we have Jace at around 3-weeks and Sophia a few days before her 6th birthday. I had a thin piece of canvas lying around in my craft room which was purchased for a previous intended art project that never happened so it came in handy perfectly for this one. I also had the acrylic paint that I had collected over shopping trips and went with a hot pink for Sophia and a turquoise for Jace. Other supplies I used was paper plate (to hold the paint), wide paint brush, ribbon (left over from Jace’s diaper cake), nail glue (the kind from the hardware store) and some scrapbooking rhinestone and letter adhesive stickers.

 

  1. First I went ahead and did Jaces foot since he would be the most difficult. I used the paper plate to squirt in the turquoise paint, used my paint brush to apply a thin layer of paint on to his foot and then I stamped it on to the blank canvas. I then did the same procedure for Sophia.
  2. After a few minutes the paint was dried and I used the nail glue to apply the ribbon. You can use hot glue also, this is just what I had easily available.
  3. Once the ribbon was in place I applied the rhinestone adhesive stickers to the sides.
  4. For my final little touch I used the adhesive lettering to put the names of each child under each foot and at the top I put the month and the year to mark the occasion.

 

My canvas art is now framed and hanging on the wall and looks so adorable in person! Plus it’s a great memory of brother and sisters footprints after the newest little member was born!
