I'm linking to Kimba's DIY Day and Hope Studios! (Whoot Whoot Jennifer Juniper!!!)
The other day, while scouring the web for cool ideas, I came across this t-shirt made by Running With Scissors....too cute! The woman is AWESOME with freezer paper...I can only hope to one day sew the cool stuff she dreams up!
So, I said to myself...Self, that would be fun to try with pics of the boys on canvas!
Step 1: take pictures of very annoyed boys still in pj's and not in the mood to pose for the momma!
(yes, cereal box..and bowls...still on the table! Notice the cough medicine? We had a sicky in the house who thought he was going to die because our boys are never sick)
He looks really sick right?
Ok, that torture is done...for now!
Step 2: upload pics to picnic or photoshop or whatever you use. Picnic has a setting called posterize...its a premium setting and I'm cheap so I just messed with the contrast until I got what I wanted---
Step 3: print pic out on regular computer paper, rub chalk on the backside of the picture, tape to your canvas
Step 4: Trace with a pen around the super dark areas of the photo.
Step 5: simply paint in the lines...and there ya go----
(yes, I heard it from my dad.....wow, you made your own little Avitar kids...hahaha pops!)
Add a saying or something to fill in the space (or be smart and do it on an 8x10, but this is what I had so I made it work!)
Yeah, this pretty much sums up everyday life in this house!
