Some Fun New Murals and Wall Vinyl Text

I had the opportunity to paint some more murals in the hallways at our church
Looking for tips on how I paint "swirls"?  Check out this post!

I got to use my Silhouette Cameo for some of the work


Oh my gosh this is a time-saver for doing text on walls, the machine has practically paid for itself in the time and labor it has saved me.

This is in the staff hallway

*a little tip:  Use at least 2 colors and overlap a little of the text to create more visual interest.

I used to not care about how long a project would take, but now that I have two little cuties waiting at home for me, I don't like being away from them for longer than is necessary.  Well, that and I have to pay for childcare hourly!

Here is the hallway leading to the children's ministry rooms

For this area, I wanted something fun, kind of mod and totally abstract.

Someone at church described it as "trippy" hahaha.  Maybe a little.  I just think it's fun!

These "bubbles" are gigantic.  I really wanted them to be playful looking for the kids.  The florescent lighting is really harsh so the walls didn't photograph well, but you get the picture.

So, this work is a little of the reason I took a blogging hiatus in December.  I have no excuse for my slacker-ness lately.  I have been so scatterbrained and I can't seem to focus on any one thing.  Anyone else having this problem lately?

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Blessings,
Jamie
