DIY "Silhouett-ish" Art

I have been working on hard on my "soon-to-be-6" year old's room. She wanted a "big girl" room, but she wanted a Fancy Nancy room. Hmmmm. So I decided to do a "sophisticated" Fancy Nancy room. I started with this D-I-Y Eiffel Tower Silhouette that was super easy, very quick, and really cheap to do! I headed to Hobby Lobby and purchased a large canvas that was half-off. I painted it my base color (aqua blue).
I applied the Eiffel Tower vinyl decal (also half price at HL) on top of the dried base-coat paint.

Then I painted the entire surface pink.

After the paint dried, I removed the vinyl decal and...tah dah.....

Ooh la la!!
Sunshine likes it because it reminds her of Fancy Nancy and I like it because it was easy, quick, and cheap! Stay tuned for more projects from her room!
