Painting on the wall...

What does a miniaturist do when she doesn't make miniatures?
I bet you have wondered what a miniatures does in her free time, when she doesn't play with Fimo or Cernit and miniatures forks and tables... well, that's easy... she simply plays with stencils and paint!

This is what I like doing when I don't have anything else to do or when I want to take a break from the miniature world: I paint on the walls.

This is my bedroom wall and the first time I painted something on it was 6 years ago, when I wrote various things and lines taken from songs, mostly during the night, when I couldn't sleep.

One month ago, I painted the big lady you can see in this picture here:


This is how I started: I took a picture of Bea Arthur as Maude and I modified it with Photoshop, then I printed it and put the pieces together again, put it on the wall and painted the contour lines with a blue felt tip pen. Then I removed the stencil and painted the whole Maude with acrylic paint.

And I made the same to do this: CHA CHA... CHAIRS!

And this is the Bette Davis I made today, using the very same method:

What do you think, do you like these?
Have you guessed who my favourite actresses in the whole world are?

Lots of love,
