Tree Mural

I finally painted the tree mural I've been on about ....
It was a bit scary at first as I am (as always) pretty impatient so I just leapt right in and started painting and making it up as I went along. I got alot of inspiration from searching images on the web, there are some amazing murals out there.
  I did pencil in a few lines and then just went with the flow.
 (so impatient/excited that I didnt even take the bunting down before I started)
M asked if it was a magic tree, somewhat foolishly I said yes and then weaved myself into a babbley story about why it was magic, whilst hoping that it doesnt end up freaking her out!! I'm going to paint some leaves on it tomorrow to make it look a little friendlier and maybe a little dotty bird perched somewhere.
It was really sweet to see M & J snuggled up under the tree at bedtime.
and just incase your'e wondering....the only reason the room looks that tidy is cos the kids were out all day at the aquarium (hooray, thanks super dad!). It was so nice to have a few hours to create something/eat chocolate and drink tea undisturbed. 

wishing you all a lovely weekend...with some peace too x

oh and p.s landlord, if your'e reading this....we'll paint it all back to normal when we move...promise!!


  1. just beautiful! loving it : )

  2. thankyou! I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, I added a few leaves today (will post a pic tomorrow). Only problem now is that I'm eyeing up the rest of the house and scheming about what else I can paint!

  3. wow! that is so cool! bet the kids love it. (also neat that you're going to see tom hodgkinson-he is almost completely the reason i quit my job and stay home with the kids-love him!)

  4. Wow! Looks fab :) Can't wait to see how the rest of the house turns out! x

  5. I was already wanting to fill the house with birds (as in little sewn ones!!)...and now a painted forest is growing! Soon the outside world will be inside!
