Happy Birthday Greeting Farm Blog Hop!

Happy birthday to the Greeting Farm! Here is my contribution to the hop. We are currently redecorating my daughter's room into Twilight. We put this tree from SU up and added a little apple from Cricut's Doodlecharms. Next is the dry run of the Edward and Bella-inspired stamps from the Greeting Farm. Flirty Edward is from the digi, but is available in rubber. I like the digi, because I can enlarge them or stretch their heights. Bella is called Camille and is in rubber from their Wild Sprouts collection. I started with them on paper and watercolor but I am thinking I will to blow them up on a copier or overhead, then trace them to paint in. (Her room used to have Lizzie McGuire that I had painted on her wall with acrylic, but it is uber hard to sand and prime over so I am thinking about alternatives to using acrylic.) I am waiting until we have her quote "Real Love stories have no endings." but it's on backorder from Michael's...pooh! Oh well. Thanks for looking and be sure to hop back to the Greeting Farm for you next stop on the hop!

What a fantastic idea! I wish I had a daughter to do things like this for, but for some reason I don't think my 15 year old son would appreciate it too much! That wall is going to look SPECTACULAR!!! Lucky Girl!

Gypsycat said...

Did you just cut them out and stick them on or did you paint the little images on the wall? This is such a cute idea. I can totally see the Princes Anya up on my daughter's wall. Print your image on a transparency and then shine it on the wall with an overhead projector. It takes some getting used to, but I used to do a lot of wall and window art with an overhead projector. :) Some schools still have the old projectors collecting dust. I bet you could borrow one.

Cecilia said...
