Three totally cute girlfriends of mine just dropped or are about to drop the baby bomb…
So it was with completely fond memories of some girlfriends throwing me (and pals) a triple baby shower that I was all about jumping on-board when a friend asked about showering these lovely ladies with some baby shower goodness! [That’s me–above, left–about six months prego with Sis.]
Their turn! 🙂
I wanted to make something personalized and special for these friends, so I set to work on three custom canvases. First, I painted the background a solid color, two a pale green and one pale blue.
Then I painted a dress on each of the girl canvases to match the nursery colors and a blue shirt/jersey on the boy canvas. [Umm… ignore that one on the right as it is LONG overdue for a friend and still not done! Shame on me!!]
Next we did the fun part: adding details!
Cole’s jersey got his dad’s old number 47.
And the girls got their names along with some smocking and pleating touches.
Painting therapy and gift-giving rolled into one? WIN!
Hopefully the girls loved them!
Here’s a slightly better photo with the colors amped up, too, huzzah!
So, anyone else going to put paint to canvas now?! Could be brilliant, wheeee!
Of course: DIY art? I’m so there! Want to see more…
