3D Hand Drawing

Want to seem a lot more impressive and artistic to your friends and family...? Well then here is a easy craft for you!
I can't remember where I first saw this, so I thought I would just reproduce it here for you guys, so enjoy!
Your Materials:
♥ Markers, highlighters, or sharpies
♥ Pencil
♥ Eraser
♥ Ruler
♥ Sharpie Fine Point Marker*
*I find the regular Fine Point sharpie works best. The Ultra Thin Tip sharpie takes far too long to use, and the thicker tip markers bleed and I find they make your piece of art look too messy

Okay... let's get started

First: Trace your hand (I know, this craft is pretty advanced)
Next: Draw a straight line using your ruler until you hit the pencil outline of your hand. At this point, draw a curved line to the next pencil outline, and then from that point continue your straight line
Finally: Start filling in the lines in between with your colours. This is where you guys can get creative! I use highlighters because I love bright colours; however, you can pretty much do whatever you want in this step

And there you have your 3D hand print!

Tips and Other Things:
♥ Don't get too worried if your coloured lines are uneven or look strange. This craft is detailed enough that no one will notice- I promise!
♥ The part around the thumb is the hardest. Just be aware and know that you can adjust the height of your lines slightly. No one will notice
♥ Cut off the white part and mount it on some stiff paper and make a sweet card
♥ You can use this technique to make anything look 3D. My friend Rachel even did this with someone's name

Hopefully where ever you are, it's not raining like it is in BC right now!
Enjoy your weekend....
