I don't know what you did as a kid, but when I was little my favorite thing was to scribble all over a piece of paper and then color in the spaces. I basically took that concept and blew it up for my wall. I decided a while ago I wanted my room green as grass, I finally decided to paint my room, but then I realized I didn't want all green. I'm not sure wither it was me or my mom who originally proposed the idea but the idea for a crazy wall, but someone did and the crazy wall was born! Fist I painted the wall white, then I went crazy with a pencil and drew all the lines for painting. I had a lot of erasing and redrawing, but eventually I got it where I wanted it. I added little pieces going off to the other wall to keep it from being too one dimensional. From there all I did was get paint samples and mix them white or other colors to make similar colors. My favorites were the ones I mixed with a shiny glossy white, it made the paint shimmery and it was very cool it took me and my mom about a month of painting. We only slowly worked on it cause I was in the middle of school. After all the gaps were filled in I bought pin striping, the one you get to put on you car, and outlined all my original pencil lines with it. This really made the colors pop and finished it off nicely
Here is a progress shot
If your wondering what i'm standing on, its my water bed frame, the actual bed/mattress thingy was folded up so it wouldn't get paint on it.
Oh yeah we also added black dots to the wall, but it kind of made them look like fish. I left one or two up but put the rest on other random places in my room hehe
Here is a shot of the right side of the wall

I also had a little tiny bit going up to the ceiling but I didn't take a picture of it
Well I hope you like it, I know I do!
