14  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Epic Totoro Door on: February 05, 2013 06:14:11 PM
I spent most of my day today working on this!



This is the door to the nursery I am presently working on.

To create this, first I measured the door. Then, I covered it in conTact paper (This tutorial taught me how:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=292952.msg3329977#msg3329977 ).
After that, I sketched out the giant Totoro in pencil, inked it with a sharpie, and went to town colouring it in with crayons!
Here it is before I coloured:



The hardest part was working above my head, and smoothing out all of the wrinkles. They kind of blended in.
Here's my hand, for perspective on it's hugeness:



Hooray!

I once had a professionally made "magic bag", and it broke open at some point over the years. Inside, I found what I thought was flax, so I ended up forever using flax after that Cheesy

Baby #3 is on the way, so I've been steadily working away at the nursery.
We have a Miyazaki theme going on, and after seeing this tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=292952.msg3329977#msg3329977  I knew exactly how I wanted to decorate one of the walls!

(Sorry for the poor image quality!)


I started out with white conTact paper, and then sketched out the Totoros. Next, my partner and I painted them. When they dried, I went over the outlines with a sharpie, and TA-DA!

Here are some close ups:









I'm thinking about adding two more, but otherwise I'm pretty happy with how this turned out.

After reading this tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=292952.msg3329977#msg3329977 I took the concept and ran with it!
With baby #3 on the way, I have been doing a lot of crafty nursery stuff. I didn't want my other two to feel jealous, so I created these!



My son asked me for Axew,



and the Pansage is for my daughter.



To create these, I got a large roll of white conTact paper and sketched out the pokemon. Then I traced my pencil lines with a sharpie, and coloured them in with crayon. I started out using pencil crayon, but it just didn't work as well as wax crayons. Then, it was just a matter of peeling and sticking! Hooray!

Edit: Husband was jealous! HAHAHAHA.... Here's his Totodile:
