My first Commissioned work done and dusted!

Hello everyone! I was thrilled (& a tad nervous) to have been asked by a work colleague to create some wall art for a baby's room. My colleague was so impressed by the photos that I showed her of my previous creation, that she just "had" to have one to give to her friend's new baby but with the baby's name and date of birth included. The frame I used for this was larger and perfect to use for 3D & it also included the glass - so I'm sorry about the reflection that occurred when I took these photos.

And a closie (a very cool date of birth don't you think?!)

This frame was a little easier in that it was gender-specific, however I've always been uncomfortable with creating "boy" themes. Wrapping the letters with embroidery cotton is sooooo time-consuming, so I may have to re-think that for any future orders, even though I love the texture it adds. I also love the little wooden buttons and wood veneer transport embellies, all of which are from Craft Queen. I stamped & fussy-cut the little animals and added the "googly" eyes. It such a good way for me to go through all my little trinkets and find the perfect addition - note the little silver heart hanging from the ribbon.

So this project did the rounds of all the staff at work by my very happy customer, and a happy customer means a very happy papercrafter :D   Thanks for dropping by xx
