Ahoy baby! 

A friend of mine recently welcomed a little baby nephew. This weekend I got to meet the little guy and decided to paint something for him. His room theme is ocean so I figured an anchor was fitting (they also happen to be one of my favourite things to draw). I wanted to share with you a bit of the process.

The first thing I did was find a picture of an anchor on google that I liked using my iPad. Once I found one I quickly traced it out. Then I take the time to fix it up until I like the over all shape. 

Then with my iPad I use a light box app to trace the anchor using my brush pen markers. 

Once that was done I used my aquash water pen to fill in the banner where i would be putting his name. 

Once the water colour was dry I picked a font for his name and wrote it in with a brush pen. 

Eh voila! A little anchor for a little man.  

  

 

Fast Forward: Baby Boy Style

Here is another post from the Fast Forward series where I will be sharing with you styles that I hope to have in the future (Home, wedding, children etc.) Check HERE for other posts from the series.

Today we are going to fast forward to when I have an adorable baby boy. Any one who knows me, knows I love children. I’ve wanted to be a teacher since I was a old enough to go to school. I am super excited to be pregnant in the future (I am also scared as hell, and in no rush, as long as I start by the time I’m 30). I also think it’s really fun to dress up little dudes because they look like tiny little humans… okay I’m getting off track. Needless to say, I really want a baby boy first because I like the dynamic of an older brother, but I will also do one of these posts for girls as well.

Let’s start !

Fast Forward_ Baby Boy Style

This one was hard to choose because babies are so adorable. You can probably sense an overall theme to this and basically I want to dress by son as if he is a mini hipster. Like seriously nothing is more adorable.

I really like monochromatic looks on kids and staying with blacks and greys make the child look sophisticated even when they are an itty bitty baby. Like look at that adorable beenie and cardigan… I seriously can’t handle it!

Up next are baby joggers, I love when babies wear sweatpants because let’s be real the are the most comfortable yet adorable thing ever. Plus, joggers are cute and fashionable.

I also love a baby in jean. Like hello tiny man! and look at that little bow tie. He’s rockin’ this Canadian tuxedo.

Baby Toms, because they are an amazing organization, durable and hella adorable.

Plaid, because I am a country girl and my baby will need a little plaid in his life.

Other is OBSESSED with wolves so it is fitting that our baby will have a Wolf teddy. AND i came across an adorable wolf/Game of Thrones onesie and I just couldn’t resist adding it. (Is is appropriate for a baby to be wearing a logo that appears on a tv show with incest…. This may cause issues on mommy blogs…)

Finally, “I woke up like this” onsie, because graphic word art is my new favorite fashion trend… and babies are probably the only people that actually wake up adorable.
