Illustration Friday- Feet

Little Feet

This week’s topic is a no brainer for me because I love little feet. Especially my two little guy’s feet. The coming of beautiful warm spring weather means the running around of little bare feet at my house. Little toes and feet being tickled by newly growing grass and wet from water sprinklers in the yard.

Before I was a stay-at-home mom, I was a postpartum nurse, taking care of mommies and babies right after delivery. One of the greatest joys of this job is assessing new babies. Looking at curious new eyes, the strength of little hands grasping your finger, little mouths opening ready to be fed and the counting of little toes. I love the feel of baby feet, there soft padded bottoms and little toes curling and stretching. It is truly heart warming.

When my babies were very little, you could usually find me with one hand caressing or holding those soft little toes and feet. Now that my littlest one is starting to walk, there isn’t much of that happening anymore- sniff, sniff.

This week I thought it the perfect time to pull out my rubber stamping supplies and carve out a print. This is a 4″ x 5.5″ stamp. It is printed with black ink on white linen paper, then colored in with colored pencils.
