Of course,as usual, (you all know me,I can't live with white walls ) my hubby and I had totally renovated it even though it's a rental.
I just have the need to make it my own (and thank God to our new home owner that went with all my paint job ideas and allowed me a freehand )
We started with the living room's grand wall.
Originally, it had these weird squares drawn on it-totally not my design esthetics !!
LOVE the door though ;) No complains there!
We covered the whole wall with light grayish decorative plaster
Hubby working hard on the first layer...I did the decorative effects
Bye ,Bye colour swatches
half dried and lightly pressed
Pressed and lightly smoothed
Second room that got a VIP treatment was our bedroom .
Our home owner's kids used to sleep in this room ,but when we moved in,we decided to give the smaller room to our kids and take this huge room to ourselves (we deserve it ! )
Here is how it looked like before
Here is what we did with it -
First of, a nice solid layer of fresh vanilla paint on all the walls but one
This will be the wall where the headboard of our bed will be
BUT the really grand paintwork and my complete and full attention got our kids's room
Since originally,it was the adult's bedroom,it had a dark wine shade wall in it,which actually was really nice,but not for a 6 and 2 year old girls....
I painted all the walls in happy and light shades of greenish and bluish -two walls been solid and two walls decoratively painted .
The biggest wall in the room got a crazy mixed and matched effect -lots of different shades were applied to this wall,one on top of the other,covering and mixing in each other
While the wall to it's right,got a very subtle pearl glaze
I enlarged my doodles in photoshop, selected some lovely cardstock by LVB and Teresa Collins, cut large stencils of the drawings out of the selected cardstock with my silhouette cutter and used my Creatopia Machine loaded with repositionable adhesive cartridge to make some HUGE wall stickers
Stencil and a Sticker of my flower out of LVB Poppy collection cardstock (still glued to the cutting matt of the cutter
removing the cutting matt off
Applying the back to back repo glue
The sticker is ready!
First option of using the cut shape is as stencil
Stick it to the wall and tab some paint over it as you would normally do with any stencil
Second option is to use the shape itself
Side by side
Adding more flowers with different pattern on -this cardstock is by Teresa Collins
Adding leafs and more flowers
Applying transparent pearl glaze
More flowers :)
This one is going to be a gold glazed flower
I also added some hand drawn flowers in using my Posca markersXYRON -you can take your art with you wherever you go,even if it was previously glued to other walls!!! )
