Yesterday I posted a blanket I made for my friend’s baby. I sent another little gift along for her ocean themed nursery that I’d like to show off too!
I mentioned when I made Raya’s Art Gallery that I ordered a vinyl decal. Well, I also added one for Miss Sierra’s personalized nursery sign.
I decided on purple. I really hope it matches.
First, I painted the frame purple with acrylic paint, and finished it off with a spray sealant.
While it was drying, I put the center together. I wanted a sandy-looking background, so I found a sand scrapbook paper. After deciding AFTER I applied the vinyl to the Art Gallery that I wished I had a different background, I decided to apply the decal to the top of the glass.
That way, if I changed my mind, I could always slip a different background paper in. Or, if Courtney thinks it looks too beach-y and not ocean-y enough, she can swap it out for something that looks more like water. A linen look would probably also look really cool.
So I applied the decal, and used my Amazing E-6000 to adhere a sand dollar and starfish to the glass as well.
Once the whole thing was dry [insert impatient checks here], I put it all together. I really like how it turned out. Courtney, I hope you do too!
I link to these fabulous parties!
