Painting flowers

Well, I finished stamping the green flowers on to the walls of Evangeline’s room this afternoon. Overall, I like the effect. Specifically, anyone who sees it will notice that the flowers go up and down all over the room. If perfection were my norm, I would have used tape or something to make a straight line on which to stamp the flowers. However, I didn’t think of that until it was too late. So hopefully it won’t be too noticeable once the furniture is in the room. The important thing was Evangeline’s reaction. She said, “Ohhhhh, flowers!” I said, “Do you like the flowers, Evangeline?” She said, “Yes. I want to touch them.” Of course, they were still wet, so she couldn’t. My problem now is that Calvin and Nevin want me to paint their room next. They want it to be “Cool–like outerspace.” I’ll have to see what I can arrange on that front. For now, I will bask in the sense of accomplishment of finishing the painting of one room. I still have to finish curtains for one set of windows in Evangeline’s room though.

  1. Cool … My mom painted all of our bedrooms with a mural somehow, I had Snoopy, my sister had a rainbow, Troy a Garfield, I don’t remember what Todd had, but my brother Kevin had a space motif. All she did was use a round sponge and add the planets (rings, big red spots and all) once they were stamped here and there around the room. And added some stars here and there. I don’t think it was super difficult, but it looked really neat.

    BTW, glad you’re feeling better!

  2. Have you seen those glow in the dark stars you stick on the wall and ceiling to make it look like you’re seeing the sky at night when you go to bed? Three bucks and every night you’re in outerspace. lol…ahh old memories
