Mini faceless “painting” with display easel

My niece sent me this photo from her first Mother’s Day and my daughter and I made this personalized (belated) gift. My daughter created the faceless image by tracing over the original photo using some sort of stylus pen and a program on her iPad. I printed the image on card stock using a laser printer and painted the protective finish on top. The paper curled up when it got wet but I was able to flatten it out once it dried.

I found the easel and push pin clips at the dollar store. I sandwiched a small piece of scrap leather between the easel and the push pin, otherwise the pin would come through the back of the easel (we learn from our mistakes :joy:). We are dropping it off tomorrow. Happy Belated First Mother’s Day, Tiffany!


Love, love, love. Very tender gift. And each dot is mind boggling!

Thank you! Those dots gave her the most grief…she’s still talking about them. :joy:

Many of my crafts are repetitive - some I find absolutely soothing, some anger inducing. A lot of moments wondering what I was thinking.

The final piece is so polished, though. I hope she feels it was worth it!
