|Before: Peyton and Brennan's Room|
|Sky, Hills and Animal Stencils|
|Brennan Likes his New Room|
The basic idea with these mural kits is, you paint the walls and when the paint is dry you apply the stencils and paint them in. When you remove the stencil you have a perfectly painted object (animals, plants and trees in our case). For P&B's room I painted the sky and hills and have slowly been going in and adding animals, butterflies, birds, clouds, plants, trees, etc. Before you start going crazy with the painting, it is a good idea to get a basic idea how you want things to look. You might want to pencil in the hills or other large objects to make sure things will turn out the way you'd like them to. In my first go around, I had painted a giant hill on one of the walls. But before I painted in the animals I realized it was better to have more sky than hills, so I had to redo it.

OK, I better get back to work and finish this project up. Peyton and Brennan can't wait to finally sleep in their jungle safari room!
