My sister and I painted this border on her living room walls. She sponge painted several colors of green on the walls, then masked off and painted a beige border. Then, using bottled acrylic paints, we painted the flowers, leaves, and vines, freehand. The technique is similar to Donna Dewberry's style, and the trick is to keep the shapes loose and free, with some designs going above and below the solid border.
The flowers literally dance around all four walls, and it is a delight to see - more interesting than a wallpaper border. We had a blast doing this project together!
Gorgeous! You and your sister should go into business!
Not only pretty to look at but how fun! You and your sister make a great team wish I lived close to you,
I'd hire you,,,
Nice job. I like how the vines kind of " drip " off the beige border. I have also done stenciling in some rooms, makes you feel good, doesn't it??? Thanks for sharing. ~ Holly
