Preparing for the birth of my first son was one of the most exciting times in my life. Adding to the excitement was preparing the nursery and embarking on a decorating adventure like no other. It all started with a piece of fabric that I absolutely fell in love with...and the rest is history!This is it...Alexander Henry's Spotted Owl fabric. When I saw these whimsical, colorful owls I knew I had to have them for my son's nursery.
I used the fabric to make the curtains and added touches of owls where ever I could. The owl print on the wall is actually a picture I made myself from scrapbook paper using a decoupaging technique on a piece of canvas.
It's not likely that I will find to many things for the nursery that have the name "Cruz" on it, so I made these letters myself...once again using scrapbook paper and decoupaging.
I came up with the idea to make make a "branch" for the room and have owls perched upon the limbs for a neat and colorful visual.I was going to attempt to make some stuffed owls myself, but I found these precious owls on etsy.com at a reasonable price and decided to go with them.
I was very pleased with the end result and I think Cruz will also approve.
