Lincoln’s nursery has been a work in progress forever. Six months later though, the last furniture pieces have been ordered, the frames have been hung, and the changing table has been painted. All I have to do now is find the letters for above his crib and figure out how I’m going to fill the frames that make up the little gallery wall
I have a couple ideas for meaningful pieces (we have a large commissioned watercolor on the opposite wall so I’m really looking for the gallery wall to be more personal + DIY) and I just got the first one finished and hung! I’ve had lots of fun using HP’s new Sprout for a few months now and it was perfect for this fun little project.
We got so many cute cards leading up to Lincoln’s arrival and I love the idea of finding a way to show them off as a reminder of how loved this baby boy is. But, I wanted to keep the nautical theme along with the navy + red color scheme and all the pastels of the cards weren’t cutting it. So, I used Sprout to scan in the various cards we got and then arranged them in the workspace (the computer comes with an overhead scanner/ camera + has a touch mat work surface). Then, I simply added an anchor overlay I found as a piece of clipart online. I paid $2.50 to get the photo developed and voila! I love that I can still keep the original cards intact (weird that I hoard almost every letter I’ve ever received?) while enjoying them in a fun piece of art.
