Happy Wednesday everyone! Today a new challenge kicks off over at Decorate to Celebrate and the theme is B-A-B-Y Showers! Sadly I am at a place in my life where my circle of friends are not having first babies, which means NO showers to attend, throw or dream about. But that does not mean there are not babies to snuggle, smell and love on. It just means the multiple children effect is happening and our type of showers are now thrown in the hospital room during visiting hours or at their home when you bring them a meal and a small gift . . . so you can hold the baby! 🙂
I made this for a dear friend who just celebrated the “birth day” of her #5 ! I am hoping I can trade this and a meal for a sweet babe snuggle time party!
Thanks to my Silhouette Cameo, this was a snap to make. I created the subway art using various fonts and positions and then made sure all were outside cuts and grouped together. I then cut it out on vinyl I scored from Pick Your Plum! I burnished it on transfer tape and then burnished on to the finished canvas.
For the canvas, I wanted to do some bright colors that did not scream B-A-B-Y! I painted the canvas bright yellow and then found a Silhouette chevron cut file! I cut that on standard white 12×12 card stock and then using a sponge, I sponged the red paint on the canvas using the chevron cut as a stencil. Once that was finished and dried, I headed down to the hubs workshop and hit canvas with a power sander to dull and distress. Once that was done, I added the vinyl.
Now be sure to head over to Decorate to Celebrate and check out the fun inspirations the design team has cooked up (word has it, we have some A-M-A-Z-I-N-G guest designers this challenge) and LINK up your fun Baby Shower project!
Thanks for sharing a piece of “babies make you want to decorate to celebrate” pie with me!
