Made with Love for my little BEAR- Barrett James born June 23rd, 2013
Finished and hung in his new nursery this weekend - how adorable is this- and he just turned 1 week old when we put it up- now I did that quick!
First I decided in the papers for the Letters-which took me the longest time- why ? because I have so much paper I wanted to make sure I found the right colors and patterns for this project I had visioned in my head
As you can see in the above pic- the letters didn't stand out against the burlap. I used pop dots and inked all the edges in several different colors of ink browns and greens and then doodled or drew faux stitching on all the letters and then found the cutest embossed Bear paper- did some fussy cutting and placed several bears around the letters- oh so cute- I amaze myself with some of my ideas...lol I then added a hand drawn border in brown ink/marker around the edges of the banner found some brown with green polka dot ribbon to tie on - and hung this adorable name banner in BEAR's nursery.....handmade with much love for my first grandchild!
I'm a mother of 4 wonderful children ranging from age 23 to 29. I love spending time with my 2 adorable American Eskimo dogs,I work part-time, bowl 2 x a week and love to travel whenever possible.I started scrapbooking in January of 2008 and have gone crazy with this craft.I love to work with papers and make my own embellishments and I LOVE to SCRAP whenever possible- And so excited to be a Grandma to one grandson and another grandchild is due this August....I'll keep busy with all kinds of baby projects and scrapbooks now.
