A Present for Nana

I wanted to share a fun little project that my daughter and I made recently as a birthday gift for my mom.

I photographed it on the piano.  Aren’t I fancy?

I started by cutting out some hearts from contact paper and added them to a wooden canvas.  I also taped the sides to protect them.  Then I nervously let my daughter cover the piece with acrylic paint.  Sadly I didn’t take a picture of the creative process.

I chose a narrow color palette so that if she ended up smearing everything together, it wouldn’t turn into brown mush.  Once the paint was dry, I removed the contact paper and tape.

My daughter was thrilled to give it to nana and nana was thrilled to receive it.
