Cousins, Bears, Everywhere don't just sit there care care care..... lol well i decided that my sisters old room was going to be my care bear/craft room (aka where i hoard my stuff until i am ready to use it. This is the first wall i have finished, from left to right it is Loyal heart dog, Lotsa heart elephant,Brave heart lion,gentle heart lamb, and cozy heart penguin. Ok here are some tips i have learned while painting my masterpiece lol 1. Do not wear any thing you care about even when using acrylics. 2.when drawing it out with a pencil keep a magic eraser near by, it is great and keeps the walls nice and neat. 3.outline it with a marker before you begin to paint to prevent rub off. 4.use markers according to the color you will be painting said thing, and lastly DO NOT under any circumstances presume you can do it ALL with one medium sized brush... now i think i have covered all of my mistakes lol
Everyone together:

Brave Heart and Gentle heart:

Cozy Heart:

Lotsa-Heart:

Loyal Heart:

Full side of the room:

ooohhhh my gosh!  I LURVE the care bears. I WANT!

I have a buttload of care bears (vintage mostly) and nowhere to display them. I'm in an apartment, so this is out of the question, but what a great idea for the back burner!

lol so cute! care bears mural=epic.

one more thing to add to your list: paint does NOT cover sharpies. EVER. it will always bleed through unless you paint like a 1/4 inch thick layers. something to keep in mind if you plan to repaint it...ever.

such the best tip ever! i did not know that, i use shapries for everything and would have used one if i could have found it i would have used it. i used dry erase and that worked out pretty well.
