A labour of love - June 2013


It's been a little while since my last post, I've been trying to make sure everywhere is straight and spend as much time with my angel as possible before my return to work. Can't believe it's that time already... anyway!

Thought I'd share this with you, I've been chipping away at it for a couple of weeks now, although I've been wanting to do it since we moved in. It's pretty much the last thing I needed to do in her room. I got the tree shape inspiration from a card I got, and then just googled cartoon parrots, squirrels and owls, the robins were from my head. There was a lot of repainting (finally got the wall paint from the builder!) but got there in the end. The leaves are from tester emulsion pots - I also splashed out on gold metallic paint - you'll see the effect in the third photo where it's reflecting the light.

I've also included a couple of other shots of her room to give you an idea of how it fits into the room.
