Art Camp mural

My girls and I have been doing "art camp" at least once a week this summer. Mia and I have talked about re-doing the mural downstairs for awhile. This week was as good as any. We drew out our idea and then went and bought some base paint. I then drew and cut out all of our ideas (trees, butterflies, flowers, etc) I would draw the outline of things and my girls would paint them all. They did a fabulous job helping. We are not done, but I thought I would share where we have been and where we left off. The original mural was done in the late 60's, and while i liked that one, I think the girls are excited to make that room their own. Later we will finish all the critters and the flowers and I am attempting to turn the tallest tree into a family tree - with peoples names on the roots. I will post it when it is done.

what a great project!
i know my boys would love to do something like this..
we are having our carpets ripped up and replaced with wooden floors in a few months, so will have to wait for that to be done before doing a mural. it looks fantastic.
i have had a houseful of sick people, and now it is school holidays, so no time to blog, and nothing to blog about..
