Wall Art

My lovely niece (I have to say that...she might read this blog) asked me if I could do some wall art for her baby's nursery.  She found this frame on Amazon and had it shipped to me to work my magic.  I used a link to his bedding set at Babies 'R Us and decided that the Imagine Blast Off cartridge would be perfect for this project.
The letters are from Blast Off (Imagine).  I printed them in layers and used a dimensional adhesive between the top and middle layers.  Under each letter is just plain white cardstock, which is taped to the inside of the frame.  I thought about using a light pattern paper, but it took away from the letters, so I went with white.
 After all of the letters were done I thought it still needed a little something.  The bedding set is sea creatures, so I checked Create A Critter and found the adorable fish, crab, and seashell.  I used the Imagine to print and cut those layers, choosing papers from Blast Off to fill the top layers.

 Once again I used dimensional adhesive (foam squares) to give the critters a little added design.
This photo is blurry, but I wanted to show you how adorable the little crab is.

I hope Amber likes it and I hope it's a great addition to Brenton's nursery.  Can't wait to see him again and snuggle his cute little self!
