Some room decor

It feels like forever since I had a completed project! I've been waiting on supplies to arrive, although I have a ton of crafting stuff there never seems to be just the right product I want to use!  So my project for the past several weeks has been to get my 4 year old daughters room ready for her to use.  In case your wondering, yup she still sleeps with mommy! We let her pick her room color which is go go lime because green is her absolute favorite color.  So to give it a nice contrast I did her name in blue, the first letter is a pressed wood letter I bought ages ago with her room in mind and only recently started planning it out.  The rest of her name is done in bazzil blue cardstock, I thought of doing this in a blue vinyl, which I don't have, so in an attempt to use what I have I did it in cardstock.  I decided cardstock would be best since I cut out the dandelions in white vinyl, that way I could pop it off the wall some for dimension.

I colored the image with copic markers which unfortunately I just left laying on my craft table for so long I don't remember which image has which colors.  So it can be a fun guessing game!

Copics used:

E29, E25, E21, E37, E35, E31, E33, E17, E11, E04, E00, E000, C10, C8, C5, C3, C2, C1, C0, R29, R27, R22, R20, Y18, Y15, Y13, BV17, BV13, BV11, B06, BG05, B000, G09, G05, YG07, YG03, YG00

Materials used:

Tiddly Inks - Whatever!, Wryn swinging by, Rainbow pixie dream
Tim Holtz stencils - dot fade, argyle
delta creative - inspirational stencil
My favorite things - linen
Dylusions paint - fresh lime
Stampendous! - frontage shabby white embossing powder
Wild orchid crafts - white pearl flower trim, assorted daisies
Ranger - Texture paste transparent matte
Silhouette - stencil (dandelions)
Indigo Blu - Autumn blaze mega-flake

I used my copic airbrush to edge each of the letters in B69

I used embossing powder to drop from the clouds.  More white came out then gold (lol) making it look more like snow then just something magical pouring out of the clouds like I had intended.

Used some blue bakers twine to make her swinging from the letter n. I used Love Letters font for the allon.

Storybook mixed media

I have to say looking at the challenges on the Simon Says Stamp blog I came across Catherine Cowles DT make for the patterned paper challenge and was totally inspired. So when starting to put together my 4 year olds room I knew I had to make something that looked like my little pony for her since she loves it so much. I wanted to give this picture a story book look to it and couldn't help but think that Catherine's card was the perfect inspiration for this!

I then glued down my patterned paper to the lower half to cover up my hideous water coloring

I colored the ponies to look like my little pony characters and although it doesn't show in the picture put wink of stella in their manes. I fastened them down with foam tape.
