Baby Gift for a Friend

I was told by the parents that "Hazel Joy" meant "the one whom God sees rejoicing," so I decided to put that as a banner over her name, like a prayer that she will, indeed, be one who rejoices in our God!

The spatters are gold gouache and the diamonds on either side of the name, as well as the dots at the front and back of the arched type are done in gold leaf. The lettering was done in a dark brown gouache with a pointed brush.

Hi, Julie,
Wow, after seeing this in its beginning form, it is beautiful, gorgeous, wonderful! I'm sure Hazel's parents are over the moon over this!

Thanks, Agnes! Glad you got to see the beginning stages. Many, many do-overs on this one. :-)

It's beautiful, Julie! I love the whisper of a prayer and the gold spatters make it just heavenly!
