Help!


Okay, keeping in mind that the best creative ideas are stolen from someone else, I ripped this idea off from our church infant environment. We painted the tree and limbs and then affixed cherry blossoms I got from michael's. The problem? It's pretty obvious. Our tree doesn't have a top and I can't for the life of me figure out how to create one. I've tried drawing it on but my perspective is all off and I'm too nervous to try painting it yet. Any advice? ideas? Anyone willing to give it a try? Email me, oh, brave artistic souls... I'm dying to get this finished so I can attach some more cherry blossoms to the top and have it totally done!

Jenna, that is so pretty! What I think you should do is make it look like there's a branch coming out diagonally from the corner on the ceiling, maybe even a couple for perspective. But make only one sort of 3D, then the rest just painted. It would look like you were almost looking up under the tree, like you're laying on the ground right under it...that way you don't have to do a weird perspective thing, but you'd have a finished look. Just a thought...

It took me a little bit to realize what you meant, but tonight when I was sitting in their room it dawned on me what you were describing. I think that is a really good idea! I'm going to try and sketch it out with chalk tomorrow and I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks so much for the suggestion!!
