Last night after my son fell asleep, I was looking at his hands. It’s amazing how much those little hands grow and so quickly! Just a few months ago we had done some hand imprint art and they were already bigger!
I had my iPhone with me and I snapped a few pictures. (Luckily the flash didn’t wake him). I just wanted the memory of his hand and the size. And of course, holding my finger like this:
Later on I decided I would make some art from it. I have an app called FX PhotoStudio ( one of many picture apps I happen to have) and I loaded the picture in there. I cropped the picture to my liking and then added the effect called Color Charcoal Sketch and ended up with this:
Uploaded it this morning to my computer while syncing the phone. Stuck it in Photoshop quickly to add the date and here is the finished picture ( date in very bottom right corner)
I then printed it on 4x6 photo paper and here it is:
I think it came out so beautiful! Took me about 5 minutes of my time and was free. On my next dollar store or thrift store trip, I will find the perfect frame for it. Right now I have it leaning against some candle sticks in my office. Its just the perfect picture of mama and baby (or almost 4 year old) love.
