I designed and painted this mural for my sister's new house.



I'm not that good at freehand drawing so I made the design in Illustrator and we then projected it on the wall using an video projector from my boyfriends work.

We traced the outline with a pencil. And then started filling it in. This step actually went a lot faster than I thought. It did however take about 3 coats to get the color right.

Beautiful!

You've inspired me to investigate making something similar with contact paper - the joys of renting!
