Like branches on a tree
We all grow in different directions
Yet our roots remain as one
Always and forever
I've forgotten how good and therapeutic it felt to do up an art piece or a DIY project. Yup, it's been a long while but I've been wanting to get our hands back on art and craft after settling down in the new house. Well, I'm just glad we finally did, even if it was something so simple that took us less than a couple of hours.
So, you know by now that we have a Scandinavian theme for our new house (you can go on a tour around the house here) since it is very close to our hearts. Scandinavian makes me think of wood, and wood makes me think of trees. I wanted to do up a decorative, personalised art piece for the living room just to jazz things up a little and in wanting to make it simple yet meaningful, we didn't do just a tree.
We did our FAMILY TREE using our hands, in a literal sense, and here's showing you how we did it in today's Creativity 521. This makes an ideal gift for anniversaries and birthdays, and considering that both our wedding anniversary and my birthday lie in the month of April, I think it was the perfect time to do this.
1) Painting supplies
2) Drawing block
4) Optional: Picture frame
5) Hands of every family member
Yes, you read that right. We need everyone's hands to form a family tree.
