DIY Jungle Nursery Artwork

I alluded to this project in my last post, so here it is!

First we found and changed up some artwork of the animals that we loved – I used my KopyKake to project them on to canvases — you could use tracing paper, or just as easily do these freehand, but it was after midnight and I didn’t trust myself!

I traced the outline of all of the animals onto the canvases using a pencil.  These were 8×8 canvases.

All traced!  Can you tell by the lighting how late it was?!

Then I packed these bad boys up into a suitcase and took them with me to surprise Las.  She was a good sport – she didn’t even complain that I showed up with work for her to do!  After a (VERY QUICK) trip to Michaels, we left with all of the acrylic paint and paintbrushes that we needed to get to work.

And of course I put the pregnant lady to work!

Working hard - with her feet up!

We did around 2-3 coats on everything to make sure it was covered well.  I think they turned out super cute!

All done!

All done!

And they definitely go well in Lewis’ jungle themed room!  Done just (barely) in time for his arrival!
