The stencil began to buckle and curl from the spraypaint and the patterns are terribly haphazard and I made a horrible mess ...but fortunately the intial impact still achieved the excitement I was going for (and I doubt anyone is going to closely inspect it & criticize my whimsy). I added little shisha mirrors to compliment the motif on various stairs & they really catch the light impresively as you travel upwards.
The first day I went to the studio after I had done it with the boys, I had half forgotten what I had done and was just as taken aback as they were to see that sparkling colorful stairs...
"Mommy! Look what happened to your stairs!"
I wondered just why they thought my hands had been stained metallic gold for 2 days... from their remarks you would have thought the menehunes were responsible. hehe
