Springy Thumbprint Art

HAPPY SPRING, friends!
Are you as excited as I am for a season of warm weather, flowers, and outdoor fun?
In honor of the first day of Spring, I thought today would be the perfect time to share this fun little framed art piece Little Crafter helped me make!
white cardstock
cardstock and/or scrapbook paper in spring colors
paper cutter or scissors
yellow, purple, green, and blue ink pads
blender pens
word stamp
5×7 photo frame
two hands 🙂
STEP 1: Press thumb into yellow ink pad and press onto 1.5″ cardstock square.  Repeat.  We did a few extras just in case.
STEP 2: Use markers and/or blender pens in ink to add eyes, a beak, feet, and grass around two of the yellow thumbprints/baby chicks!
STEP 3: Make a blue thumbprint on another 1.5″ square.  Add a print of the index finger on top to make a head, then use markers and/or blender pen to add ears and grass.  We made a tail with a dab of white paint.

STEP 4: Mount the white squares on colored 1.75″ squares and glue them on a larger background strip.

STEP 5: Add word stamp and ribbon, then frame!
We put ours on a little table in our dining room along with two wooden flowers from Michaels that LC painted for me.  It’s official, this Artsy Family is ready for Spring!
What about you?
Happy Spring and Happy Crafting!

  3. Saw this cute print over at a link party and had to come take a look. This lead me to read your whole series on How to Grow Your Blog and found it so interesting. I gained a lot of good information as I have one of those small blogs who is trying to do just that. I pinned it and will be coming back.
