I had been admiring the vintage Barbie Fashion Sketches that I had seen here and there in catalogs and on-line, but the price was a bit steep. So I was trying to figure out a less expensive alternative when I happened upon this calendar at World Market.
The minute I saw it, I knew EXACTLY what I was going to do with it. (I would have really loved to use it for our yearly calendar, but the boys in the family might have protested a bit.) I decided to use it to create Barbie fashion art for the Princess' bedroom.
|So many adorable illustrations! It was hard to narrow them down.|
The images are calendar-sized, obviously, so I wanted to do a sort of gallery/grid to give the art more presence. The Princess had fun choosing her 6 favorite illustrations to frame.
We chose gold frames for a girl-goes-glam look, and framed them up. Then after careful measuring, we hung them above her bed. They look perfect!
I hope these little peeks at the Princess' bedroom are fun to see because her bedroom is almost finished. I'm just waiting for some fabric I designed to arrive so that I can make the bedskirt, pillow sham and curtains. Then I'll post the big REVEAL!! Can't wait to show you!!
