DIY Decor for Katherine

I've been wanting to buy/make some things for Katherine's room. She really doesn't have much, except for some colorful paper lanterns I hung from the ceiling.  We recently watched Tangled and I was a bit inspired by Rapunzel's tower room.  So I searched Pinterest and found all kinds of murals and paintings.  There was one I really liked, and thought maybe I could recreate.  I believe it is a much like a painting that is featured in Rapunzel's room.  I didn't want to go full out Disney in her room, but I love the subtle things you can find around the internet.

I grabbed a piece of cardboard I had on hand, and some acrylic pants.  I used primary colors, plus white, black, and green.  I had so much fun mixing the paints to find the different hues.  It really turned out better than I thought it would.  I want to find/make a frame for it yet.  And really if I were to do it over, I would definitely have put it on something other than cardboard, but I think it's good for now.

I have another project for her room, but I'm not sure how that one will go.  I'll share when I have it finished.
