Optimistic handprint plaques

I started these this morning from those inexpensive canvases at Michaels. They were $1 each. After I realized that the paint was not going to cover the lines, I sealed them and then basecoated them. Some of them still took a couple of coats to cover.
I got this much done before I had to go to work and please note that I did manage to clean my counter, I did not realize how bad it looked until I saw the pic.


Tyler was at work with us today and I brought him home with me for a few minutes to make his handprint. It is a good thing that I did this now...his hand was almost too big


I went ahead and put Logan and Gracelyn's names and ages on the next two and have 5 more ready for the grandchildren to come. (that is the optimistic portion of this) I have told the girls that the quota is 8 grandchildren and that they can work that distribution out among themselves. Anyway this is my extra bathroom or guest bathroom and the one where I bathe the kids when they stay with us. I painted this canvas last year and did the bathroom decorating around that. The kids really love the bright colors.
