OK, so not really, but I have been spending a great deal of time creating one for the Children's Church room at my pastor's pastor's church an hour and a half away.
He wants a tropical island and a real pirate ship that the kids can climb on with a slide and a puppet stage!
A man with a vision.
Makes my heart go pitter patter, I tell ya!
It started out as a great big room (when I say big, I mean a 40X40 foot room with a stage and a sink and counter) with pretty, puffy white clouds painted all over. While the clouds were beautiful, they just weren't as animated as I imagined that they should be.
I took purple and blue paint and a sponge and added some dimension to them. After two days on a scaffold sponging and foofing and glittering, we had some pretty nifty clouds.
That was the first step among many! But next, I had to go SHOPPING! Oh, Happy Day! Shopping at craft stores to create a whole tropical island pirate hide-away.
Think palm trees and parrots and treasure chests and monkeys and waterfalls and...
Can't wait, can you? I'll show you some more tomorrow!
