6 x 6 gallery-wrapped canvas
Detail of crystal letters
My childhood friend is having a little girl. She and baby-to-be were given a beautiful shower yesterday and I wanted to share with you this petit canvas that I made for the occasion. I heard from her sister that the nursery is decorated in "pistachio and sea shell pink" (and I thought I was the only one who spoke in paint chips ;) and it's safe to assume that Baby Audrey's eyes will be the color of the rest of their family, a beautiful amber. With that in mind, I created this 6 x 6 piece that I hope she and baby will love.
The tiny face was made using pencil, acrylic, water-soluble crayons, ink and Stickles glitter (on the whites of the eye) and the sides were painted in the colors of the room (the green looks more pistachio in person, I promise). Finally, I added her name on the right side of the canvas with whimsical iron-on crystal letters.
Fingers crossed that she does end up looking like the canvas - or else I'll be doing another version once the little bundle is home . . .
