Whipping Up A Few Baby Shower Art Gifts

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!!]
