I had a pre-stretched canvas and prepared it with gesso. Gesso is like a paint primer and protects the surface of the canvas as well the brushes. Once the gesso was completely dry, we can paint on the canvas.
My husband, two kids and I used our thumbs and index fingers (think my little one used his pinkie too) and made patterns like flowers.
What is a flower that doesn't attract a bee! So we accommodated visiting bees too, and buttterflies and ladybug!
We used a black pen to draw.
Voila! We have this beautiful art hanging in our living room. And it sure caught the attention of a visitor today.
Have fun finger painting and making it come alive!
