A set of decorated hands





Here is a set of decorated hands created for a journal swap. The idea is that a journal is made out of the different hands created for the swap. Each artist participating has traced their own hands (so these are obviously mine) and then decorates them in whatever style. On the back of each one is a handwritten art quote.
We each have to make six hands in all so I still have two more to go but they are great fun to do!

SUch a neat idea. Reminds me of the hands of my sons that I still keep...one is from kindergarten...done in cement...have it in my garden. The other of my older son's hands...from middle school. They had to trace them and decorate them like you did here. I had it framed...
I bet it was fun to do...

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
