Wall Art!

Well, I got to two of Ella's "brands," if you will, on her bedroom wall. I have all eight drawn in pencil and now I have to go back and paint them. Avery took a nice nap, so I was able to paint two! Now, granted, they are easy one's (only one color...), but they still took some time to do:






And to give you an idea of actual size:



The other six logo's I've sketched on her wall are: Camp Rock, Cheetah Girls, High School Musical, Hello Kitty, Hannah Montana and Littlest Pet Shop. I think the Camp Rock one will be my ultimate challenge. Maybe even more than my Raven's Cornhole design was...


Anyway, while I'm at it here, I thought I would share my other wall projects. It all started in the kitchen:




Then traveled to the powder room:




Thinking this was fun and relatively easy I decided to do one in our master bedroom. This one took forever because I used wall paint instead of the other stuff and so I had to do multiple coats. Plus it's quite large:

Next I perched on the washer and dryer and tackled the laundry room (which is my favorite so far!):

Then I wanted to do something fun in Ella's dress-up corner so I came up with this (in glitter paint, of course!):

I promise Bible verses are coming....I'm actually working on one for Jon's grandmom and pop. I'll take a pic when I'm done with that one as well.

To help get me thinking about verses for my house, which is your favorite (short!) verse you would love to see on your wall??!!??

Oh, I have always wanted to stencil a verse in/near our foyer...I have just not gotten around to it yet! Maybe someday...

hey jenn,
you know you can order those in vinyl letters that attach really easily to your wall and there are several sites (www.juststickemup.com) that have them pretty inexpensively. but you're doing a great job!

In a previous house, I had "Taste & See What the Lord has done ..." in the kitchen.

Jenn, When I move we are doing this to my walls...I want "it all started with a mouse!"

in my old house in the kitchen I had (in Italian)...Live in such a way those those who know you, but don't know God, will come to know God because they know you.
now I have it in my bathroom in English

The ones in your kitchen and powder room are among my faves. I've been seeing the live, love, laugh one on premade stuff lately too, like some wicker baskets in a catalog last week.

I want to do something like this in the boys' new bedroom - any ideas on a quote about brothers? They've already vetoed my initial idea of the what little boys are made of line. :)

Do you free-hand them? How in the world do you do them? I love the "All because two people fell in love..." and would love that above the doorway to the kitchen coming in from our sunroom...where most people come in our home!
