I'd been searching pinterest the past few weeks for ways to make Boston a hand print ornament like we have the previous two years. And since I didn't have the pre-made mix to make the mold this year I needed to find a recipe for the ingredients to make that mold.
But....then I thought, "Why do you want it to be a mold?" "Why not a hand print that you can keep and add to for many years to come?" So that's when the canvas hand print art came about. I have lots of canvas laying around that I got from Michael's in a pack of 7 when they were on sale.
Before Christmas while Jer was working from home one day......I decided that I'd get his help while I.....well you know, documented the process with pictures.
At first Boston wasn't having it. He doesn't really like being messy. Especially when it gets all over his hands. When he realized we wanted his hand to get rubbed all into this pile of paint he was a little hesitant.
In order to know when this was done, I plan on adding the date below the hand print with a permanent marker similar to the photoshopped picture below.
