Crafts creativity


I saw this silhouette idea while I was researching for my Today’s Mama Father’s Day crafting roundup post.  I knew I wanted to include it in our gifts of {love}, but I also knew I wanted to adapt it just a little bit.  I already had all the supplies to put it on canvas, so that’s just what we did.

I had the kids paint a background on an 8X10 canvas.  Then I took a picture of their side profile.  That was enough for one day.  Day two involved me putting a white sheet of paper over my computer screen and lightly tracing each kid’s profile.  I suggested they make a collage of the things that describe them.  Joshua loved the idea.  Emma G opted to draw herself instead.  Don’t you just love the braid hanging down?

After gluing their profile on, I covered the whole thing in Mod Podge to seal it.  I absolutely love how these turned out!  They truly were a gift of love that the kids proudly gave their daddy on Father’s Day!

Linking up with the lovely Jennifer@Studio JRU for Sneak Peak Friday.
