Field of TOE-lips

Who needs tulips when you could have TOE-lips??
Olive and I did a little Spring painting this week.

Here's what you'll need:
1 canvas - 3 pack at Wal-Mart for under $10
green + pink (or your favorite color) paint
sponge brush
smaller paint brushes
5-6 wet paper towels
1 baby :)
Cheerios or snacks to distract said baby

I painted one foot and and did four foot prints.
Wiped the foot clean with the wet paper towels.
I added glitter to them.
Painted the second foot print and stamped it five times.
I found that I had to reapply paint after each stamping.
It worked best to use the sponge brush to paint her foot.
Warning: the wet paint will feel funny and make your baby giggle :)

I let that dry for a bit and then started adding stems with a thin brush.
 I let the stems dry and started adding leaves.

 I made the executive decision not to do hand and foot print flowers because Olive is so wiggly.  I figured tiny feet are cute and we'd all be happier if I didn't try to get hand prints from her.  She was slightly bummed that I opted not to do her hands.

 Luckily, a few more cheerios cheered her right up :)

 I'm glad to have Olive's 1st Spring/Easter documented in a
Field of TOE-lips!!

  3. So cute! I will have to try this with my little one! Stopping by from #linknblogs! Have a great weekend!

  4. I love this idea. Every year I have painted my kids feet on their birthdays and add it to their scrapbooks. They are now all teenagers and their feet pictures are precious memories.
