Flower Garden


I've done this sweet quote from A. A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh several times, but never this way.  It is usually done in cursive over a plain or lightly patterned background and is designed for adults.
 

However, this one is made for a little girl.  The "little girl" part is important because she didn't want it to look too babyish.  I think I did a pretty good job on that part!
 

It also had to match this really cute flower quilt from Pottery Barn Kids.  The walls were pale pink so I used the green with large white dots for the background.  I love that little pop of aqua and used that for the border.  I think I did a pretty good job on that, too!  I can just picture that canvas hanging over the bed - perfection!

Hi, I just wanted to say... that is my little girls room and you did a beautiful job. It is the most special piece in her room. I cry reading it as it is a special messages between me and her. Anyway, it's been a while and I'm back looking for more ideas for another of your beautiful pieces. I'll be contacting you soon:)
