HAND-PAINTED | wall flowers

Remember those baby shower invitations I did? Well the same friend, Amber wanted some fun flowers painted on the walls in her little girl’s baby room. I was happy to help! If you look close you can see the flower matches the flowers in the fabric she has for her bedding. Here’s a peek into how I did it.

I started in Illustrator by drawing the flower she wanted:

FlowerProject

Then I printed it on a transparency:

I used an the transparency with an overhead to project the flower onto the wall:

The paint we used was a high gloss white to make the flower stand out more on the wall. It almost looks shimmery.

I ended up painting 3 flowers. Here are the after shots:

I think the curves of the flowers contrast nicely with the strips on the adjacent wall. What do you think?
