Sophie's Portland Birthday

My beautiful great niece, Sophie, will be turning one this March. I decided to make her some art to go along with the nursery set that I made for her last year. I decided to let rainy Portland inspire the piece. It was made using collage and acrylic paint techniques. She will be having an outdoors party. A sunny warm day and many blessings is what I wish for her.

Here are some pics of Sophie's nursery set. The quilt design was my adaption of a pattern found in a quilting magazine which featured a larger striped quilt with more columbine flowers. The color palette was also changed to give it a retro shabby chic feel. I decided to make a window valance to match. The kitty design on the pillow was hand embroidered. The picture frames were purchased as is.
