I doubt it is a surprise that I love footprint crafts. I just can’t get enough of them. We have made animals from A-Z, musical instruments & even a volcano. A couple of weeks ago I made a footprint craft inspired by the painting The Scream. I had so much fun with it & wanted to experiment with turning my daughter’s footprints into more works of art. We chose Whistler’s Mother & The Son of Man aka The Man in The Bowler Hat.

As always, it begins with a painted foot.
