How to use a carboard cutout and make art out of it?

These cutouts are my granddaughter's foot that I traced over several years to see how fast she was growing up and I also have one of her hand. I would like to make these look very artistic like incorporating these in a painting or reproducing them in plaster. Any idea would help and thanks

  • It would be fun to have them put on a canvas, as steps with them getting larger as she has grown.

    I would mount a photo of your granddaughter at the age of each footprint and cut them out. Mount them in chronological order on a wooden box and decoupage the box for a keepsake box to give her when she graduates or marries. Or lands her dream job.

    Hi Francine

    If you want to do a painting, it would be fun to perhaps have a path that her footsteps could follow. Through a garden??? a forest??? from birth through school??? chasing a butterfly??? through 4 seasons??? There are so many possibilities. What a fabulous idea! I hope you take pictures and post your project on Hometalk! Wishing you the best.
