Baby shower collage

Sarah and I went to a baby shower of a good friend on Sat and I decided to make her a wall collage.

I started with an 8x8 canvas I covered with paper and then put a page with a lullaby on it. I added wallpaper I had distressed.

I did a contact paper transfer - Thanks to Sarah Ahearn! of a little child and his duck.

I then added 3 wooden stars that I had painted and distressed.

I covered the back with thick gold paper and added hangers after I had attached a blue ribbon all the way around. They know the baby is a boy and I included a wooden piece with another tiny star so she could add his name and birthdate if she wished later.

My Sarah( the mother is named Sarah too) also got creative with her present and wrapped this up. I love the hands and feet!

We have another shower for her in November and I am working on something for that too!
