Getting Ready for Baby Brooks!

Well... I've been slacking on the blog recently, but I do have a good reason. WE'RE HAVING A BABY! This summer we will have a little boy join our family and we couldn't be more excited!

This also gave me an excuse to do something fun, PAINT THE NURSERY! We decided (suprise suprise) to go with a Ocean/Underwater theme for the baby's room, and I thought I share som epics of the process!
The sky and water are regular laytex wall paint. I painted the sky first, added the waves, and then rolled on the rest of the water.

Then I added the crest of all the waves and the sun. This both are combination of acrylics and paint pens.

Then I added an outline on the crest of the waves and to seperate the water and sky.
What under the ocean scene is complete without a sunken pirate ship?

This is the bottom of the ocean and a little rock formation by the door, just layed out in basic colors.

... and here it is after some detail work!

I also added a happy octopus...

and a happy little Jellyfish!

This has been a fun project so far and hopefully the baby will love it, I'll post more pics as the project comes along!
