Janie's Painting

A couple of months ago, Bug's good friend welcome a new baby sister, Janie. Being the third child in the family we knew there wasn't much they truly "needed" for the new baby so we decided to welcome her with a painting of her name.

A while back we found this wonderful scrapbook paper that we just knew would inspire something down the road.

So I painted a simple 8x10 canvas pink:

And then sketched out some of the flowers and her name in pencil:

And here is the finished piece (I can't find my "good" picture of this, and it has long since been given to sweet baby Janie.) For some reason the pink doesn't look as bright as it did in real life and every other color in the picture looks twice as bright...

  1. I love it! You did a great job - and your inspiration is fabulous, too. I like to use scrapbook paper for inspiration - especially for color combinations!
