Here's the great thing about Pinterest, I am great at replicating. I can look at something, figure out a way to make it and often times make it better/something I like more but I am horrible at innovating. which is basically why pinterest is so amazing for me. I can see thousands and thousands of great ideas and then adjust them a little to make them fit me/us better.
I'm pretty much a gigantic copy cat and I'm starting to come to terms with that.
I recently ran across this great idea of hand prints on canvas and I got to thinking about where I could display this in our house if I did it. Well, there's a perfect spot in our long beige hall (that is already being filled up with pictures in black frames) that can not only be a great place for 4 canvases ... but many more can be added for years to come.
so the idea was to get 4 canvases. 8X10 for Husband and I because our hands are bigger. And 5X7 for the kids. Then I decided that unlike the pinterest idea, I wanted all the backgrounds to be the same. I decided black. And I already had that at home. Next, I had everyone pick out a color they wanted their hands to be. Came home and made it happen.
|our colors. Can you guess who picked the pink ...|
|I used another pinterest idea to paint the canvases. I put push pins in the backs of them, so they stood up off the paper. So there was no canvas drying TO THE PAPER. fabulous idea and no touchups needed.|
