DecoArt Stencils-Wall Art

I wanted to create  a nice design on my bathroom wall. I used DecoArt Traditions acrylic paint.

Several stencils were used:

First I taped off 7x7 squares leaving an inch between them. I painted them White Wash White.

It took a couple of coats to cover up the lavender on the wall. 

The I started layering using Botanical stencil and Antique Green. I used all 3 designs and just moved the stencil around on each square.  To get a different shade, I added some of the White Wash White to do the 2nd leaf. The third one I used yellow.

The flower is from the Garden collection and is Reusable -stick on stencil. I did some of the flowers in Black Plum and some in Yellow.

The bird is from the Bee's and Birds stencil. I did two coats of Black Plumb.

I ended up sealing it with a coat of Satin Varnish.

 I hope you'll be inspired to paint on your walls!!
