ahoy!

Since this summer, when Sharon's little one developed an obsession with all things pirate, I was supposed to make something of a pirate nature for her. I struggled with a lot of different options. I had a limited resource of pirate things in my arsenal (read: nothing) and just had no clue what to make for my favorite 4-year-old.

Then, recently, Sharon and her husband redecorated Shay's bedroom to be a pirate theme, and it is so delicious! She's going to post pictures of it here soon, so you'll see what I'm talking about. The color of the walls (a nice oceanic blue) inspired me, and this is what I came up with:



I left the top left portion of the canvas empty so that, if desired, a photo can be added with photo corners. It's an 8x10 canvas, that can rest on a shelf easily. The pirate stamp is a new addition to my collection. I colored him in with markers and jelly roll souffle pens. More of the details can be seen at my Flickr page here, as well as the step-by-step process.

I can't wait to give this to Shayna...I hope she loves it!!

Nichole - This looks even better in person. Especially the little metal piece. I can't wait to hang it in Shay's room. Next I'll post on the room transformation!!!
