My inspiration photo:
I wanted to do something a little smaller and
in a different shape for my
new baby Chloe’s room.
I found an image online that I liked then photoshopped it so I just got the silouette. My friend owns a projector so I used that to project the image onto the wall. If I dint have a projector I would have made a template for half the design and just flopped it- because its such a large image to trace.
Heres my starting wall- you can’t really see my pencil marks-but just so you get a feel for the before and after
For the hot pink I used 2 coats of Benjamin Moore’s Candy shop pink
For the outside border I measured 2.5 inches around the whole mural with a pencil and made dots then connected the dots to make the outline. The next thing I want to do is write her name or make a monogram to go in the middle.
I think doing something like this for a wedding to display place setting cards or photos of the couple would be super fun to make for a client someday.
