100 Acre Wood Mural

So, this was the first mural I did for my kids bedroom 13 years  ago.
I started it when I was about 30 weeks along with twins so even reaching the wall
was difficult!

Rather than making the ground/horizon at the bottom of the wall, I did about waist high so the twins,
as they got older, could see it better from standing in their cribs! 

I used multiple techniques to create the grass & rolling hills, including dry brushing,
sponges,  and a stippling brush.

Of course the room looked like this once they were in 'big kid' beds.
And yes, there is a toddler sized bed under all the mess :-)
My son's side of the room.

My daughters side of the room!
