one of the biggest and most exciting moments of the summer: my first etsy sale. a very special mama came across the “you are my sunshine” wall art on the re-nest studio etsy store, sent me her nursery bedding, i made a sketch and the rest was history. (oh, and i should mention that this order meant so much. opening a little store like this felt kinda like standing naked in the middle of times square. finding a fan was the best feeling.)
this very special baby was going to have an adorable light turquoise and orange bedroom….a color combo i happen to l-o-v-e. because i was working on this long distance, i did a simple sketch of the piece, so my client could see how the colors would look together. i also pulled some patterned papers as options and we settled on a turquoise and vanilla stripe as the background for the word “you.” once we had the plan, i got to work.
i have to say that i loved how these colors blended together, and how the orange let the turquoise pop.
here’s to being a little creative everyday,
