It's a girl!

Welcome to the world Evie Nicole!
Evie is the sweet niece of a dear friend of mine who i used to teach with.  Once i found out that her brother and sister-in-law were decorating Evie's nursery in an Owl theme, i jumped at the chance to create something special for the special little one.  Evie must have been excited about the Owls too because she came a couple of weeks early!  This was great for all, and gave me a chance to put her full name, birthday, and birth stats on the painting. 




I could not be more pleased with how this turned out especially with the polka dot ribbon!
Happy Monday folks!

    1. Hey Suze! I generally use both fabric glue and a hot glue gun... the trick is to do super thin layers of both to avoid lumps and bumps under the ribbon. :)
