I Love Painting the Edges!!

So, here are the one's I am working on for Eli and Isa and I painted all the edges last night. I decided to carry the stripes from the front of the painting over to the edges and it turned out to have a really cool effect. I have never tried that before, but I was pretty happy with the outcome. I also cleaned up and put another coat on Eli's lettering, and on the front of the two 6x6's. Then I added some of the accents from the bedding to the 1.5 inch thick edges which I totally heart!!!!

Melissa...I love them!

The colors, the lettering, the edging...ALL.

And wow...I didn't realize that is how you do the letters. Amazing! You are very talented.

I was wondering about that this morning when I saw the pictures you sent.
