Madelyn ~ Take 2 - Finale





A few additions here and there. The first was the inside of the lower left flower. Madelyn's Mama told me the meaning of her name... Faithful Follower of Christ (Girl of God) and Wellspring of Life, so I finished the flower with these words over and over again in the circle.




The second thing I added is a third bird. Angie from AZ's comment was that the top left hand corner looked a little bare and I fully agreed. She suggested adding a third bird so I drew it out and right away saw the space fill in perfectly. I was having a hard time with the white space in the picture as I do not usually have white space but fill in every little space of white! So this was new to me in a lot of ways.



And this is the final page complete with extra bird. I really enjoyed creating this extra girlie page for baby Madelyn, she is just over 18months old I think. I think she will like the Princesses dresses and the blue birds the best!

Thank you to all of you who left me such wonderful, helpful and fun comments ~ I appreciate them so much and I am truly greatful to have such wonderful women in my life to help my creativity and inspiration - YOU ARE AWESOME!

I pray for many blessings for the rest of your week.

Hugs

All little girls seem to like Princess dresses. Mine certainly did.....one still does at 22! I quite like the white space in this piece.

Those are the perfect finishing touches. I learned a long time ago that looks look better with odd numbers. 3 birds is perfect
