How To Extend an Artistic Helping Hand

As summer ends and school begins, most of us feel like we don't have enough time, enough hands, to do all that needs to be done for ourselves, our families, our children, and more.


Here's a way to extend your helping hand - quite literally!  Trace your hand on some cardboard, start to decoupage, stencil, embellish,  and away you go.


This hand was created for a friend of mine who had received a diagnosis that required radiation of her thumb joints.  But you could apply it to anyone!


Here's a video of my process: 



Can you imagine giving your hand to someone in this way?  Please share in the comments.   And make sure to check in on Thursday when Karen Gaunt shares her first Creative Team post! 



         Visit Stencil Girl Products and RubberMoon Stamps to see all my designs!

    I have a "girlfriend box" sitting on my dining room table (BFF struggling with chemo).....I am miles away and therefore send goodies in the mail to her.
    I immediatley thought your HELPING HAND would be a great addition to send.
