Been dreaming over this colour palette for a few month.
Finally decided that it is to be the new wall color for the kids playroom
I wanted something girlie (coz technically it is more the twins playroom than Ryan)
but I did not want the traditional pink/purple combo...
So last week, we went to the paint store to get this gorgeous mint paint called "Tinkerbell"
How fitting, huh?
Since it is just a tiny room, I left hubby to his own devices and decided to venture into a new project that I've been meaning to do as a part of the playroom deco: Head Silhouette
Let them dry for a few hours and make sure that the newspaper did not stick to the wet paint
(which totally happen to me :p)
There's several way to get the head silhouette
1. Draw the profile free hand & fill in the blanks with the colour of your choice. Traditionally silhouette are black in colour, but feel free to change it up (my chosen method of the day); or
2. Take a side profile pic of your child/ own head, blow it up and "trace" the profile on a piece of paper ; or
3. Print the profile off the internet and stick it on a canvas or for an easier and cleaner method put it in a frame :p
Once the silhouette are painted on the canvas, wait for it to dry and later spray the gloss paint on the canvas to get the shiny/gloss up effect. Depending on how efficient you are, the whole process would probably take around 3 hours (taking into consideration the "drying period").
Lo and behold a head silhouette of my children : Iman, Ryan and Ranya. Anyway though the twins looked more grown up than Ryan, I'm very happy with my handiwork :)
Will post the picture of the completed playroom once I'm done with it.
Toodles, have a great weekend everyone and happy trying...
