Fingerprint art.

So anybody whose been reading my blog for awhile probably knows how much I love personalized and sentimental art (ie. here and here and here) around the house. I recently saw these stunning rings and knew I had to do something with our fingerprints.

And I pretty much LOVE what I came up with.

fingerprints

EDIT: TUTORIAL HERE!

I used our wedding ring fingers to make them a little more special and meaningful. Best part? Absolutely FREE. And the best surprise? My ring finger apparently has a teeny tiny M. My fingerprint is on the left. See it?

I can post a full tutorial to follow if anyone's interested!

  11. I love these prints. How cool it would be to have each of my children's underneath their pics in my bedroom?! I'd love it. I had the vet do a paw impression of one of my cats that was hit by a car...I LOVED this cat to pieces! His paw print sits on the shelf of my computer desk!
