My sister asked me to paint a mural in my niece's room before she was born. She wanted a really girly garden theme to match the crib set. The walls were covered in really old wallpaper that took forever to get off. Then I painted the background colors.

I painted the green of the trees with a crumpled up plastic bag, then later added stenciled leaves.

Painted some vines and stamped flowers.

I traced an actual piece of picket fence on the walls to make them all identical, then painted them in. Added vines flowers ect. I hand painted the dragon fly and fairy.

I didn't like the blonde looke so I redid it in brown. Painted parts of here dress and wings with glitter paint.

Some of the bugs on the wall are glues on for a 3d effect. Cheyenne's name is on wood blocks with small wood bug decor.

I also painted a growth chart on some fabric so that it can go with my sister when she moves.
