I’m not typically one of those people who’s really inspired by or loves quotes. But when it came time to create some wall art for Hailey’s room and I was researching “nautical/ocean” themed nurseries, I kept seeing this one”count the waves” quote that seemed so sweet. Sure I could’ve just created the design and had it printed to frame and hang but I like the handmade look!
I designed the quote digitally first so I’d had a reference of sizes/fonts when it was time to sketch it out. Derek primed a canvas that previously had a different design on it so I had a blank slate to dress it up for my little miss.
After I had a rough sketch ready, I got out my Deco Art Americana paints and got to work making this piece colorful. The white border just seemed TOO white to me so a few little dots were needed to keep it colorful.
After that was all dry, I took the same approach as the Octopus Wall Art and added some sparkly accents using crystal fine glitter. Learn more about Deco Art via their website | Facebook | Twitter | Pinterest | Instagram | Youtube.
While I do not sell a version of this as a painted canvas, I do sell 8×10 prints of this “count the waves” design in my Etsy shop in the same pastel colors I used.
Or if you’re looking for this design in a custom size or colors to match you’re child’s nursery, you can see this listing. Check out these customer submitted photos of the print in their custom colors of choice in their adorable nurseries:
