Back in July, I painted a watercolor (click to see it HERE) for my friend's daughter Lane's 1st birthday! I had such fun doing it that I had to start planning another one. Adalay is turning 1 next month and so I started on this project last week. And just as I suspected, I couldn't possibly wait to give it to her.... so her present was delivered early last night.
Something about the 3D look of these shadow box paintings makes me happy. I can't wait to start a new one. I haven't really decided what yet. Any suggestions?
I lined out the whole image in black sharpie and then washed over with watercolors!
After it was dry, I covered the back layer painting with glitter and then dabbed bits of glitter onto the sprinkles. I used double sided sticky tape and cardboard to attach the painting in the box.
Well I'm off to edit the day away! Tomorrow I will be posting some pictures of our Holiday decor. I can't wait to share. See ya!
