something worth keeping

we do a lot of messy art projects around here
paints, water, play dough, crayons, markers, pencil shavings...
these get cleaned up as regular as the breakfast, lunch and dinner crumbs
we keep very few of our projects -the fun is in the process, the mess making
our family tree
but this one was different, this one was for dad
we set out to create something worth keeping, something worth giving 
something that said-
You are Ours. We are Yours. Let it always be so.
Happy (so very belated) Father's Day


  1. Oh, I love it! Looks amazing!

  2. Looks great! Did you do the lettering at the bottom?

  3. I saw a couple forms of this idea on pinterest. I used watercolor paper and did the tree with aquarelles (watercolor pencils that you brush over with water after coloring). I printed the lettering using a font I liked on my computer and then etched it into the paper, going back over it with black pencil (no way could I freehand such nice letters)
    It was super easy -but if you want it even easier, I know there are sellers on etsy that make personalized tree prints so all you have to do is add your hands or thumbs or feet or whatever:)
