Hi scrappers!

With the holidays approaching thoughts turn to celebrations, which for me involves favorite foods, traditions, friends, and family. One of my favorite things growing up was the holiday crafts – making ornaments for the tree, cutting snowflakes for the windows, and drawing hand turkeys. So you can imagine my excitement when I saw Mou Saha’s Thank You layout in the Creating Keepsakes November/December 2013 issue containing an adorable hand turkey. And better yet, steps showing how to recreate it in a grown up way.

Here’s Mou’s Thank You layout – so darn cute!

Now the steps to make your own hand turkey. The first step is pretty straight forward – trace your hand but this time use watercolor paper instead of construction paper like you did as a kid.

Next, add your title with a pencil (you’ll trace over it with pen later). Then color the turkey using pigment sticks or watercolor pencils and cut around the hand.

The last step is adding the details with a pen. Make sure you trace over the title too.

Voila! One stunning hand turkey ready for his appearance on your scrapbook layout.

Have fun creating!
