Practice painting with Disney

Hello friends,
 I am almost done with my " Red Wall project". I just need my hubbies help with a couple of things and since he hurt his back,it probably won't happen for awhile.(Not his fault) SOOOO.. now what? I am going to share with you something I painted about 6 years ago for my friends daughters room.
Now this is a perfect example of what happens when you do not plan out your project properly. The images started to merge into the side wall and this would have been much better moved way over to the left. Cinderella looks a little scared like they are going to crash.

But you know what,one can not complain. I didn't charge anything to do this and it took  a-lot of time ,plus I didn't have a projector or a picture of Cinderella sitting to go off of. 
I found pictures of the other Disney Characters in coloring books and other children's books. They were a-lot easier.Now if I were to do this again, I would use a projector! Also if you do this make sure have your full design ready before you start to paint  it , you will save so much time!
I still think it turned out cute,it was nice of my friend to let me practice on her wall. This was a good learning experience.  One day I hope to do another Disney mural. 
 This week will probably be dedicated to past projects until I finish my latest one. Thank you for stopping by, feel free to add any tips or suggestions or anything,(just not mean).
I am going to party with
