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.)
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?
