here). She was kind enough to let me use some of the same papers to tie everything together, but to keep it from being too matchy-matchy I added a few more. I was really shooting to combine a very artistic, loose painting style with the very child-like "cut paper" feeling that the quilt provided. I incorporated lots of blended paint areas to contrast with the cut paper collage elements. And I am an absolute sucker for embellishment so of course rick-rack, glitter, and some iridescent paint were absolutely mandatory!
We did two nature themed canvases, to compliment the bedding, and one with the folded paper fans. I thought the folded paper fans would help add more texture to the theme and help break up the unity of having three pictures exactly the same. A have a tutorial in the works for the fans when I show off a few more I made for Kate's room next week....stay tuned!
I can't wait to see how these three look living in their new home!
Hope everyone has a safe and fantastic weekend!
