Painted Frames

My brother in law and his wife are expecting their first baby in June. They are having a girl!! They picked a name and have already starting decorating her room. They chose an oh-so-cute Dr. Seuss themed look and I found that I was able to match a few things and paint them myself.

Sometimes, creative projects can start with a conversation like this....

"Do you want these frames?" asked my sister
"Yes, I'm sure I can find something to do with them." I replied

I looked up the Dr. Seuss set that they picked...and I noticed these cute little frames....
Then I remembered the little frames my sister gave me....
I painted them white.....

I sketched the look I wanted in pencil.....

Then....I painted them with acrylic paints that match the room, when the paint was dry I gave them a spray of Krylon, Crystal Clear gloss to make them shiny......
And you know I couldn't stop there....I had to make a personalized painting for her wall too!

I cant' wait to meet her....hope she likes what I did :)
