Bible Verse and Footprints for Father’s Day
I haven’t been posting a lot lately as I’ve been trying to savor this last newborn experience with our sweet little Clara, but I wanted to post a picture of our Father’s Day present in case anyone feels inspired to make something similar for their family.
I’ve been wanting to find a way to capture all our children’s footprints in art now that we’re almost certain our family is complete, and I knew I wanted to incorporate a Bible verse. After finding some canvases at Hobby Lobby, I picked out the verse from several I’d been mulling over, sketched out a few layouts I thought might work, and then set to work using the acrylic paints I had at home. It kind of took shape on its own as I laid down the background and then tried to squeeze all six children’s footprints in as planned, but overall I’m pleased with how it turned out.
P.S. Here’s the matching picture I did with hand prints the next day (much harder than footprints with a baby and toddler!):
