I had seen a few images on Pinterest of women holding up signs with messages of love to their significant others, and thought I could do a version with our kids! I laid down a nice blanket, got the girls into white/pink outfits and got to work.
My initial concept involved cutting out the letters L-O-V-E from pretty paper and sticking it to a canvas board like so...
...but Eden got too distracted by trying to feel the letters for the photos to work out, so in the end I covered my canvas with white paper from my sketchbook, and then folded a bit of brown craft paper around the centre (to cover the overlapping pieces of sketchbook paper). This was my 'template' I suppose.
I got my girls to lay on the rug holding the makeshift sign, and snapped away!
Of course, it wasn't quite that simple; Ava wanted to wander around, which made getting photos of her quite tricky!
In the end, I got the shots I needed. All you need to do then, is upload them to your editing software, add the lettering for your message, create a collage (to spell desired word/message) and then order from your fave photoprinting shop.
Gotta say, I'm pretty happy with the results, and I can't wait to see what hubby thinks!
Thanks for reading! ~ L.
