Wall art

I have been struggling with thinking (or finding) ideas for decorating my girl's bedroom. They have white walls and nothing on them. Well one night while couldn't sleep I thought of a great idea!! I know....seriously....I was amazed myself. I very rarely come up with my own ideas. Most of my crafts have come from others ideas that I altered to my liking but this idea...well....it's ALL MINE!! It'd be my luck if it was actually done by someone else and I just don't know it. oh well, I'm going to share it with you anyway and hope that you like it!

I wanted something to bring a lot of color in the girls room and still stick with the "princess" theme they all adore. So here is what I came up with:

I used a 18' by 18' board and modged podged squares (I cut them 2' by 2') of paint samples to make the checkered design. At the end I had a little bit of the board showing on two of the edges so I decided to add a black border. Then I cut out silhouettes of Cinderella and Prince Charming, and Sleeping Beauty on my cricut using black vinyl and slapped them on the board. VIOLA!!!! SO DANG EASY!!

Whatcha think??

Such an amazingly cute idea! I love the colorful background with the simple silhouette. Great job!

This is really effective! I usually do my silhouettes on a plain background but this has really opened my eyes to another alternative!
