*** 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 Iâ€™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 Jaceâ€™s diaper cake), nail glue (the kind from the hardware store) and some scrapbooking rhinestone and letter adhesive stickers.
- 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.
- 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.
- Once the ribbon was in place I applied the rhinestone adhesive stickers to the sides.
- 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 itâ€™s a great memory of brother and sisters footprints after the newest little member was born!
