Instructions:

1. First you stamp out your images for your scene. I used Fireside Friends and a mice from Santa Paws Newton. The sentiment is from Sentiments of the Season.

2. Than you draw a horizontal line which best represents the dividing line between the floor and the wall. After this you put a pencil point somewhere in the center. This point will be your viewpoint. Measure on the bottom points that are evenly spaced. Connect these points to your central point.

3. To make your perspective better you draw now horizontal lines. Be sure you space the lines more closer to each other, than below.

4. Color your tiles. First I colored the darker tiles with Copic Markers C07, C05 and C04

5. Then color the lighter tiles. The Copic markers I used for these are C03, C02, C0.

6. The last thing to do is to create your wallpaper. I simply covered the images and tiles with post it notes and distress inked my background. After the base was finished I did the same thing but with the Waves Stencil.
