I bought this canvas in Australia for Little Man’s Aussie First B-Day Par-tay. I put a sign in the middle of it at his party that read ‘Happy 1st Birthday Little Man’, and asked everyone to sign the canvas or put a little message to him. I thought it would be a fun thing to look back at all his Australian friends who came to celebrate his 1st birthday there.
When we got back I printed out a 5×7 black and white photo of the three of us at the party and put it where the Happy Birthday sign had been.
I wanted to hang it on Little Man’s wall in his room but here in our new place, on the white walls, it just looked, well, really white! So I painted the edges jet black and hung it up, and ya know, I think I like it. Added just enough contrast to make it stand out. What do you think?
