These Are Our Hands

I wanted to make something special for my daughter for Christmas this year, and I also wanted it to be something that would be from her children to her. I got inspired by something I saw on Pinterest awhile back that involved scanning kids hands. So that is what I did, and this is what I turned that scan into with some digital magic...

These Are Our Hands Art

I altered the color and layered in some digital art to create this piece. Then I sent the final image to the CanvasPeople website and had them print it onto canvas and frame it. It turned out even better than I expected, and my daughter seemed to really love it. I also included with it the following poem (which I had my grandson write out on the card):

These are our hands

You used to hold

When we were 8

and 2 Years old.

I had so much fun creating this for her...even if it was incredibly challenging to get two little hands to hold still long enough to be scanned--especially since my scanner software was acting up that day and we had to do it 3 times before we got it right! But it was well worth it in the end.
