A Derivative Project

I have long been eyeing this picture in the Pottery Barn Kids catalog. It’s very cute, no? It looks 3D. I didn’t have any 3D objects d’art to devote to this project, so I made do with canvases and paint I already had, and hot glued some polka dot ribbon to the edges and for hangers.

I’m not sure what was up with the lighting of these pictures. They don’t look this lurid in real life. The walls in the girls’ room are a nice warm buttery yellow (I believe it’s called Baby Bee Yellow) and the colors of the paintings are an exact match to the fabric of the curtain and closet valances you can see in this previous post and the crib bedding and rocking chair upholstery you can see here).
Hannah is very pleased with the pictures. She’s been firmly instructed not to touch them or pull them down. Even Jack lectured her when he saw her tempted, “No NO Hannah! Don’t touch! Only for ah-dotes!”
