What to do...

...when it's freezing cold outside, if you have your parents visiting, and cardboard left from your moving boxes ?


As you may know, i'm obsessed with that design, called "Acapulco".



so i decided to make a big fresco on my wall.
Over Christmas, my parents were visiting. and when we didn't go out to visit the city, we worked hard to build it:

1. draw and cut the shapes


2. paint them white







3. let them dry


4. add colour






5. let them dry


6. circle the shapes with a black marker


7. fix on the wall with needles




et voila !!

Quelle bonne idée, ça rend vraiment bien!
Ca me rappelle les ateliers peinture qu'on faisait étant enfant, ma mère découpait les formes, on peignait tout ça et on accrochait nos oeuvres dans la cuisine!
