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!
SPRINGY THUMBPRINT ART
cardstock and/or scrapbook paper in spring colors
paper cutter or scissors
yellow, purple, green, and blue ink pads
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!
