Nursery painting

My oldest daughter moved into her “big girl room” and left the nursery for her little sister. I wanted to create new decorations for my youngest because she didn’t have a lot of stuff that was made just for her. I decided to make a painting for over her crib. I had lots of canvas paintings that didn’t match room decor and were sentenced to the basement, so I painted over with white. I found this saying on Pinterest that I really liked. I’m fortunate to have a projector so I sized it up on the canvas until it fit well.

I traced the projection with pencil.

It’s a little wiggley but it’s still a million times nicer than if I were to freehand it.

I picked some acrylic teal that I already had. It matches her room perfectly.

I painted and filled in the writing. I suppose I could have also painted the outside and left the writing white. Sort of by accident it ended up looking like watercolour. The paint was thicker and thinner not on purpose but I really like it.

After I finished painting in the letters.

The final result in the nursery.

My youngest daughter has a real artist as a godmother and she created a beautiful painting with her name. I also found the letter on Wayfair.
