My version of the Pinterest Challenge

Well it’s Wednesday…. and that means it is time to ante up with my Pinterest challenge. We have had a pretty busy last week, so forgive the simple nature of this project. This took about 10 minutes to do…although I am not sure I am done with it. I think it needs a little something else…it isn’t quite as good as I had hoped… anyhoo.. here you go!

Here was my inspiration..I saw this and fell in love with it. But I have 3 kids! So we needed more than one flower.

Since I already had supplies on hand for the small 8×10 canvas I used it. So here is my version….

This is a very straight forward project… it required an 8×10 canvas and your choice of acrylic paints, and a paint brush.

I had each child pick a color and put their hand print on the canvas. I used some wax paper for them to get good coverage on their hands before they put their prints to the canvas. Then I took some green acrylic paint and painted on a couple of leaves and stems. Voila! Complete!

Here is Ashton doing his…

Notice the cute little baby rolls?? Love that!
And Garrett doing his…

I couldn’t find the camera for Hannah’s, but just envision a 12-year-old putting her hand in paint (gross!!) lol

So did anyone join in? Did you at least find something on Pinterest that you would LOVE to make? I know my sister-in-law and I have to plan a weekend to do some projects.. there are just too many ideas that need to be tried!
