Happy Kids

Hello everyone:

Today  we would like to present to you two very happy, and satisfied customers. Cameron (7 years old), and Sophia (5 years old), brother and sister from Santa Clarita, California, who after seeing our decals asked their mom to decorated their rooms with the “Yellow Gobbler” and the “Surf’s up” Design decal packs. Well, they liked their rooms so much after they had the decals put up, that they sent us two very nice thank you letters.

Happy Easter

Even though patches of snow may still be visible in our towns, and the fridged temperatures have not gone away just yet, some small changes have started to happen that indicate the arrival of that very anticipated season, Spring.

Yes, the 20th of this month we welcomed the arrival of Spring, and with it, the anticipation of nature blooming once more. It is the season of rebirth and life, when baby animals make their first appearance into this world surrounded by beatiful foliage, and colorful flowers that appear to have been painted by some heavenly artist. — No wonder we like Spring so much.

With that spirit in mind we would like to present to you our newest decal design especially for Easter lovers just like you.

Mixing different designs to create your own

If you haven’t already tried decorating with wall decals you would be surprised how fun and easy they really are to use. Wall decals save you time, and are a usually a much better alternative to using stencils or painting something free hand. But in spite of all the variety of decal designs and companies that exist these days, you might find yourself not satisfied with the choices you are provided with. An excellent alternative to this dilemma might just be to create your own decal collage. By mixing and matching different looks and shapes you are guarantied to create a look that is all your own.

But before you start panicking let me offer a couple of tips that may ease the daunting task of choosing the right designs, and colors for your particular project. Keep in mind that you will need to do a little bit of research on the Internet, looking for ideas and different designs, but even that can be a very fun experience as you start learning all the kinds of tools that are at your disposal.

Lets say you want some “animals” for your decoration but you feel that putting a lot of the same shapes up would be too repetitive and monotonous; well consider adding a bit of whimsy with some color “dots, or rings”, the addition of geometric shapes would be a very interesting contrast to the organic shapes of the animals. You can also find colors that complement each other and add that desired look you need. Bright, bold colors like red, yellow and blue, will instantly make any play area for your kids a cool place for them to hang out. Cooler colors, like more subtle blues and purples will create a sense of calm and tranquility; in contrast, yellows, reds, and oranges will energize the mood of any person that walks into that room. Earthy colors like dark and light browns and even a touch of beige will add elegance, and a touch of class to a room where grown ups would love to lounge in.

Animals rings and dots

Notice how much more playful the animal set becomes as soon as you add some rings and dots in the designs. The primary colors immediately gives you the sensation of Circus Animals, excellent for any kids play area.

Now that you have those color tips in mind, you can start thinking of the designs that might look good with each other. Take our “Wings” and “Birds” or even the “Captain Rocket” designs for instance, you can combine them with our “Clouds” designs with our larger packs for bigger projects, or the “Slim Pack” set for smaller areas, to enhance the feel that they are in flight.

Mix any geometric design with each other and you can create very interesting patterns. A “Dot” can be put inside an “Outlined Square”, of vise-versa; “Hexagons” can be combined with “Rings”, and so on and so forth. You can give any office space a very modern look by using a mixture of geometric shapes creatively. You can get great ideas by looking at architecture magazines, or by visiting websites that display modern furniture and design.

You can also use any of our “Dogs” designs and add some “Paws”. Combine some Rings with the “Ducks” design in yellow to make them feel like rubber duckies in soap bubbles. The “Fire Trucks” are excellent to pair up with the “Wheels” design; again, you can add some “Clouds” while you’re at it for the background to create a deeper sense of space. The design possibilities are endless, and that is just mixing between our SlickSticks designs, imagine what you could come up with other decal designs you may find somewhere else?

Vehicles and clouds

Here we combined the fire trucks, the wheels, and clouds to give a more complete feeling. We added some lines to give the sensation of roads and a horizon line, by doing so you also create the illusion of depth.

In essence what I’m trying to say her is to just have fun with this wonderful medium that is wall decals. Try things out and discover some of the possibilities that can be achieved with your imagination.

Now go out there and stick something on the wall!

Great Ideas for Vinyl Wall Art

If you are the creative type that loves to decorate your home, then vinyl wall art might be a perfect option for you. Inexpensive and interchangeable, you can achieve any motif to fit your mood and taste. Additionally, you can integrate vinyl wall art with other decorations such as paintings and photographs. The ideas are endless, and it really is up to you!

For example, if you decorate your walls with black-and-white photos, you can layer square vinyl wall art underneath the frame for a layered effect. You can use blue squares, apply them to the wall and offset the frame for a staggering, creative effect.

Another great idea is to actually “frame” the picture with vinyl wall art. You can use a cut-out circle, apply it to the wall and place the picture in the center. This will really draw the observers’ eye to the photo. Flower vinyl wall art is a beautiful accent to frame any photo as well.

Take any of your favorite pictures of posters and frame them with a decal border.

Take any of your favorite pictures or posters and frame them with a decal border. We used the "Outlined Squares" design for the soda sign, and the "Rings" design for the picture of Rover.

You can also use vinyl wall decals to liven up any space between framed art and photos. Think of flower decals cascading down the wall in between two tropical-inspired paintings. Really the options are endless.

Decals are great for the middle of the wall as well or as borders. This is a very decorative method for your children’s room, and is less expensive and messy than paint and stencils. In fact, your children can assist you with the layout because vinyl wall art is so easy to use. Not only that, your children will feel like they had a say in how they decorated their room.

Vinyl wall art can be used on objects as well. Instead of decoupage techniques, you can save time and money by simply sticking a motif on an object. Decoupage is time consuming as you have to paint glue over the paper cut-out, let it dry and then sand it down. You must repeat the process many times to give it that “painted on look”.

These are just a few ideas for using vinyl wall art. Of course the options are endless, and really depend on what you want to create. Just know that there are a variety of colors and shapes to fit your every decorating need.

See you soon.

Niko.
