Here’s another sample of how we took Isabella’s footprint and turned it into a Disney souvenir keepsake. We ran the Disney Princess half marathon when she had just turned 2 months old and her tiny footprint was taken at that time. It was her first, of hopefully many, trips to Disney World as she grows up.
We ran as a team called Team Roo and had hats embroidered with a kangaroo and the words “Team Roo” on them, so of course, her first Disney footprint art needed to feature Roo from Winnie the Pooh.
The footprint was made by brushing acrylic paint on her foot and pressing it down on some watercolor paper. I sketched out the rest of Roo in pencil using the footprint as Roo’s body.
When I was satisfied with that, I drew over the lines with a Micron pen, added the medal we got for finishing and our team name and painted it with watercolors.
It will be a challenge to keep turning Isabella’s handprints or footprints into her favorite Disney character for each trip, but it will be a fun way to watch her interests change as she grows.
