paint paint paint!

April 10, 2008

Spent nearly 12 hours yesterday working on my “Under the Sea” themed mural. I am LOVING every minute of it! If it looks a bit familiar…note that this mural is for Maddie’s sibling to be. I really love that we are using the same color scheme of periwinkle and lime pop, with bright cadmium orange details. There is a nice contrast in that Maddie’s room is quite rectilinear, while the Under the Sea themed nursery is full of curvy, flowing shapes. Here’s a peek at my priming madness from yesterday….

If you try this at home, note that you MUST prime when painting over colors like periwinkle…especially if you want your colors to remain vibrant…

My seahorse if finally coming to life! Maddie is affectionately referring to this as her Tiger Seahorse…I have a feeling she may want to switch rooms by the time this project is finished…lol!

Hope all is well with everyone! Hugs~ h
