Pinkalicious in Progress

Here is what I am currently working on...finishing up Ava's big girl bedroom. It has been too long of a project (maybe because I have procrastinated and also because of all the stuff we have had going on ranging from parties to being sick).

Anyways, you may recall, I was refinishing (with the help of my father-in-law & hubby) some vintage bedroom furniture for her new room. My AMAZING father-in-law, Rudy surprised us by finishing the project himself! I was a bit relieved b/c I did not know when we were going to be able to finish it and it looks AWESOME! I promise to post photos soon, I just need to finish repainting the hardware first so you can get the complete look.

At any rate, getting back to this post. Ava loves the book Pinkalicious (if you have a girl in preschool you know what I am talking about). So I decided to paint a picture from the book for a big empty wall in her room.

Here is the scene from the book:

And here is the painting in progress. This thing measures 4' x 4'. I made some adjustments to the picture...I decided the sky should be a Tiffany/Robin's egg blue. I want this to be bright and colorful. Next step is to paint Pinkalicious herself and then the final step is to make all the flowers out of fabric and mod podge them on. Think it will look really cool and will be a good way to use fabric scraps I have lying around. Plus I have so many cute, pink or girly fabrics I can't wait to incorporate in this painting.
I'll post more pictures as I get further along.
