Baby Name, The Girl Edition

Spring seems to bring a bunch of new babies which means that we will be trying to find just the right baby gift. Custom name pictures are mucho dinero in the pricey gift shops but you can reproduce them with the help of a light box.

Materials:
frame
mat
watercolor paper
pencil
watercolor pencils (or paints)
fine black ink pen

Tools:
light box (see older posts for instructions on how to make one)

This was done in Photoshop, but any word processing program should work as well.

First, open a new document. As this frame is 8x10 with a 5x7 mat opening, the document was 5x7. Write the child's name and find an appropriate font. This font is Davida BT, chosen for its curvy lines and broad letters. Size it to fit and print.

Next put the printed copy on the light box and place the watercolor paper over it. Center everything with the mat. With a pencil, lightly trace the name onto the watercolor paper.
Take the watercolor paper off the light box and draw simple vines, flowers and leaves over the letters, erasing stray lines.
Scribble the watercolor pencils (these are crayola ones available everywhere)on a scrap of paper. Dip a small brush into water, hydrate the paints and lightly fill in the leaves, vines and flowers. Go back and fill in the letter shapes. Use a darker concentration of the blue paint around the edges of the letters to give dimension. With a black ink pen (I used a roller ball pen from my office, but a fine felt tip marker would do as well) outline the various flowers, vines and leaves as well as the letters.

Tips:
Don't stress too much about the imperfections such as colors that stray a bit beyond the outlines. This gives a handmade look, which is the point after all.

I think this is not a very good name for a girl who is on a belly, but if it is your pick it would be a great idea. just to remember that we have to choose a good name for anyone.

It turns out I’m not the only one who’s ventured into this newly discovered (and newly chic) off-price land. Experts say consumers are increasingly designer savvy, and the word masstige has been coined to describe the trend of prestige for the masses. And then there’s the economy — it’s not so happy, if you haven’t heard — which is also fueling the demand for good deals. Attention all label whores: Designer discounters are where it’s at. michael kors bags
Hundleby, a former human resources manager and mother of four, quit her job to focus on making Strathberry a success. While the brand's roots are in Scotland, the bags are made by an artisan in Spain and the designer came from Louis Vuitton.For a company that launched a mere two years ago, its bags have already been worn by style influencers and celebrities, like Emma Watson. And we'll definitely be michael kors outlet keeping an eye on this brand as it attempts to win our hearts here in America.
MORE: In your interviews and research, did anything really surprise you about Halston?WSS: I went into this film thinking that he was this superficial disco druggie, but what I really came away with was how great an artist he was, and what a revolutionary fashion designer. I also found that he was loved and admired michael kors factory by almost everyone he came in contact with. Halston should be respected as the artist he was, as opposed to solely representing disco and the Studio 54 days. Fashion-wise, he put the disco look on the map. It couldn’t have happened without him. I really had no idea.
Michael Kors has shown us that he can take a completely new-to-him trend from today’s society and apply his unique touch to it. michael kors outlets The audience can clearly see that he is experimenting with new walks of life, but manages to put the MK stamp on every garment that walked the runway at New York Fashion Week.After a much laid-back and demure fall collection, Michael Kors decided to experiment with bolder colors and geometry for his resort line, something that he absolutely hated in high school. As a result, the Michael Kors resort 2016 collection michael kors Chicago Premium Outlets brings masculine meets feminine casual chic clothing pieces with interesting op art prints and graphic lines. From utterly covetable outwear designs and go-to mannish trousers for creating day-to-day effortlessly chic looks to sexy printed dresses and a couple of stylish bodysuits, this 38-piece fashion line manages to bring diversity to the scene without forgetting about the importance of statement-making accessories.
After developing the technology, they tested it in focus groups. michael kors tote “The hardest thing was the moment when we had to say to the kids, ‘Thank you very much.

Scott Schuman gets off the streets and steps inside a burlesque club in the latest episode of his AOL Originals michael kors purses series.There's been a lot of talk recently michael kors outlet online store 49.00 outlet about the disturbing absence of models-of-color within New York’s twice-annual ready-to-wear shows.While many blame designers and casting agents for their narrow definitions of commercially viable beauty, others allege that the root of the problem is actually the lack of diversity within New York’s design studios. michael kors outlet online sale Here the discussion is less about diversity in a broad sense--many designers of Asian or Latino descent are represented—-and more about addressing the shocking Michael Kors Purses lack of African American creatives among New York’s design elite. Pulitzer Prize-winning fashion critic Robin Givhan gave this issue a thorough examination within her Michael Kors Online Sale 2006 piece "Laurels and Darts", concluding that financial obstacles and less influential social networks were among the challenges preventing numerous talented black designers from michael kors uk becoming household names.
