Thanks folks!  About the contact paper: I am a bit concerned about it leaving a nasty residue on the wall in addition to it harming the paint.  I'm thinking someting temporary so paint is out of the question for me.  I suppose to obtain the different shades of blue I want I could paint the contact paper.  hummmm.  Ohhh how I love craftster!

3M makes a repostionable adhesive, (can't think of the name), and at wall mart you can pick up the stencil adhesive, which is what they use to keep the stencil down to paint, then it pulls off.If there is a gummy residue, you can use that stuff that you can take labels off with.Hope that helps!

If you use shelf paper, it won't leave a residue.  It's made for being temporary...

There's static paper, or window clinging paper.  the things that they make little decorative holiday cut outs and you stick them on your windows and peel them off when the holiday is over

that's what i could find online.  it's called static cling paper, google it, maybe you could draw or print on it.
Contact paper will not work!!!!  Grin

I love putting temporary stuff on walls Smiley  Here's a link to a site that has cool stuff that is of a more literary nature:  http://www.wonderfulgraffiti.com/index_f.html.

i saw his work for the first time at this cool art gallery in SF, my friend looked around at everything else but i didnt want to leave the wall, lol, the small pics are amazing but dont do his work justice, seeing them in all their huge glory is so much more satisfying, *sigh* i hope he has a show around here again.

hey bodacious, have you tried anything yet? i am curious how your stencils will work out.

I'm a slacker.  I've not tried.   Although an update on my thoughts on Contact paper:  It should be okay.  I was 'sealing' a care package I'd painted and didn't want the packing to ruin with contact paper and it was waaay more removable than I had originally thought.  I will in a matter of seconds check out the last few web sites suggested. ***WOW*** the art in R. McGinness IS truely amazing.  The Wonderful Graffiti is tremendus too, at first I was thinking, toooo expensive, but after checking out the site it seems fairly cheap and now I want some (or to think  of a way to do it myself)!

As for progress, it's actually in a friend's room.  She has to finish stripping the wallpaper bf we get into this project, but as SOON as we start I'll post!  PROMISE!  (it should be soon, fall break is coming shortly)
