Aaahhh...the first post of 2013!  I couldn't think of a better way to kick off a new year than with featuring this sweet baby.  My friend and coworker, Andrea Thaxton, had little Chandler this year and wanted something to hang over his crib.

She brought me the window valance to match the colors and design.  I did some pale khaki dots over the white background.  You can barely see them in the photo!  Then I chose some of the dots in greens, blues, and khaki from the fabric and ran one strip down the side.

Finally, I did Chandler's name in a classic cursive.  I kept is simple without too many loops and swirls to keep it masculine.  I love how this one turned out and was so happy to paint for this wonderful family.  Congratulations!
