I just sort of winged it with the contact paper and the trees- I cut out long strips with a standard pair of scissors to make trunks (didn't draw it out first), stuck them to the wall, moved them around as I saw fit (it isn't permanent) and cut out thinner pieces for branches and twigs.

Thanks for all the compliments!

so i haven't posted on craftster for over a year. but i just moved into a new house that i'll be in for an extended period of time (first time in 5 years!) and so i decided to really put some effort into decoration.

i got my first set of furniture that wasn't hand-me-down (ikea!). also, i saw the most amazing tree wall decals on ebay, but wasn't feeling the $80 price tag. so i bought some black contact paper and made my own! this is what i came up with:

I love this! I especially like how you were true to the shapes of the panels- it reinforces the comic book feel. I agree with you, the top's the best part.

This is amazing and inspirational. Even though the subjects are public and private, they're both intensely personal. I wish I had done these! The Wonderbread one reminds me of the project on here a while ago of a plastic bag. I'll post the link if I can find it.

I see similarities in the rendering of the bags.

Wow, I didn't think I'd like the prints as much as I do! I think the red looks better with your skin/hair tone, but I think I like the darker one the best. I'm really torn! Good luck deciding- I'm sure whatever you choose will look great.  Smiley
7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: For a friend who underwent a hysterectomy, a happy uterus! **Now with patterns** on: April 07, 2009 05:36:50 PM
What a great, hilarious idea! I have a friend who went through a similar situation who would have LOVED these- she likes to joke about her new "bionic cervix." She also threw herself a death party when she got a terminal diagnosis. Five years later, she's cancer free, with an even stronger sense of humor! I would bet that maintaining a positive attitude about things and being able to laugh bumps in the road goes a long way to recovery.

Wow, this is incredible. I wish it was mine!

Oh man, my mom made those horses for us too! It must have been a popular pattern. My sister wore them out again for Halloween when she was about 16!
