Birthay Crowns close-ups

I've been requested a birthday crown for a little one turning 3, and while taking pictures of it before sending, I realized I still hadn't taken good ones of Merrick's, so here are both:

I carefully chose every details I put in my children crowns. Merrick's is yellow; he was born on a very sunny morning of a hot August day, he's a leo, sign led by the Sun. Oaks leaves are green, summer colored. I choose oak because of it's importance in paganism. My little boy should have the king of trees on his crown, nothing less! The M is blue, just like Merrick's eyes.

Axe and shield to represent the nickname my mom and his "godfather" gave him; Little Viking. His name is of anglo-saxon influence and means Ruler of the Sea or Great Conqueror. Add to that that he's bright blond with pale blue eyes, and always growling.

The spear and wheat is because he was born on Lughnasadh.

On to the custom order. I don't know the little Isabelle Mae that will have it, but her mom requested for pink, flowers and ladybugs. She was born in December, which inspired me to add the white swirls and snowflakes.

I found I loved doing crowns for other kids. I have another one to make, with a Moon and snowflakes.. I'm still drawing the design in my head. The initial will be a G for a change!
