My brother and sister-in-law had registered for some Skip Hop items that were part of the Treetop Friends line. Everything was so sweet! We chose to buy the mobile like the one pictured below.
Seeing these cute little critters gave me the inspiration to paint a few canvases to go along with the theme:
I love the light pink background. While I normally use acrylic paints, this was a sample of wall paint from Lowe's that was perfect for this project (I watered it down quite a bit so that it wasn't too thick). I also used some scrap booking paper for the leaves, which added a little bit of dimension to the paintings.
They were a pleasure to paint, and even more rewarding was a trip to meet Eliza and spend time with family. We are all smitten with her, and will definitely be looking forward to more visits. In the meantime, I'm in the mood to paint some more, and nursery decor is pretty fun. So, who needs some artwork for baby?!
