book-inspired nursery art: sunshine

September 6, 2010

I had a small white  $5 canvas and a bunch of left-over scrapbooking paper from my button beaks project, so I decided to make ONE LAST PIECE of book-inspired nursery art

The button beak project--in case you haven't seen it yet. 

Lucia's name means "light" so I wanted to make a sun. I love this scrapbooky sun from a page from Here's a Little Poem, illustrated by Polly Dunbar. (Do you like my foot in the bottom right hand corner of the pic? Classy.) 

Here's A Little Poem: A Very First Book of Poetry

It was really easy to do with my good friend Mod Podge. I just cut out a circle and a bunch of variously sized triangles. Mod Podged them in place and waited for it to dry. 

It took about 15 minutes to cut it all out and glue it down! Easy and cute, I think. 

Who needs good ideas when you have beautiful books to copy? Which beautiful books have inspired you lately?

Beautiful job! I love the easy factor.

Hi Vanessa

This is just lovely!!

I am so inspired by Eric Carle...I recently did a post on bibliotherapy and our art was inspired by "The Tiny Seed". What I love is how the art or craft is a constant reminder of the message in the book!

Your daughter's room is just gorgeous! Wish I could come and see it in person. I love how the sun turned out and think it's the perfect accent to the button beak artwork.
