I found this print online while searching for artwork for children's rooms. I loved the little birds and all of the colors in the print, but didn't love the price tag... $108! I was about to move on in my search when the pattern on one of the umbrellas caught my eye. It was VERY familiar and the more I studied the print I realized...this was made from scrapbooking paper! The very paper that I had sitting in a book in my sewing room.
Of course I had to try to see if I could replicate the print. So while Will watched the BCA Championship football game last Thursday night, I sat at the kitchen table with my paper and all of my paints.
I am pleased with the results, except that you can see the seam in the paper (look in the green grass area to the left). So if I do decide to use this in Anna Cate's room, I may try to recreate it on canvas, which would make it much easier to paint the background on.
