To kick off the summer, I was inspired by the beautiful painted colors and rich patterns and textures in Mary Logue’s Sleep Like a Tiger, with illustrations by Pamela Zagarenski. In this sweet bedtime tale, a little girl, who isn’t tired, learns that all the animals need to sleep, even little girls.
The girl’s parent teach her all about the sleeping animals, and in the end, the girls takes the lessons she’s learned and is able to fall asleep on her own.
I used some of the details from the book like the tiger and the crowns, and then layered colors and textures over neutral furnishings and Island Sand Paint. For ever more texture, you could stencil over the walls or layer on a pattern of wall decals.
