Leaving your mark-thumbprint canvas

Part of what made the reunionpalooza such a good time was having activities, crafts and outings. In between all the visiting, laughing, reminiscing and eating we took a few moments to create this keepsake for the 2 matriarchs, (aka Grandmas).

I usually find fingerprints are my enemy, what better than a “family” tree filled with all of our fingerprints stamped on it as leaves?

I high tailed it over to Walmart and picked up a 2 pack of 11×14 canvase. A little bottle of brown acrylic paint, in bark brown (how appropriate) and 4  stampers in different shades of green.

Now all we needed was some relatives and their fingers…

Total cost for the keepsake – $16

Everybody signed their names by their prints and the rest is history.
