365.74: Wall Ideas

So our office/playroom is a really dark navy blue. Really dark. I don't wanna repaint over it, so I've been trying to think of what I could put on the huge wall behind this here computer.

Cristie gave me the bright idea of maybe instead of trying to cover it with something really big, painting a bunch of smaller canvases to hang in a collage. I love it! My parents are coming to Waco August 6-10, so I thought it would be really fun to have a painting day where we each painted one or two canvases (including the kids).

Here's an idea of what I'd like the finished product to look like. These are actually fabric hangings, which I think I may incorporate with our paintings!

And here are some ideas to get us thinking creatively:

  1. Soooo as I was saying in my LAST post, you know the tree I'm's the tree above with the blue "leaves" and little red birds. Thx for the ideas last night! Love you! Mimi

  2. I love the idea! Sara and I have decided to do something really similar in our living room--with fabric instead of paintings though. Love the prints above--where did you find them?

  3. oops--i totally meant to include links to their etsy sites! let me go edit real quick...
