On Valentine's Day, about a week after the idea of the wall came up, a very sweet gift was delivered to me at work. My boyfriend had managed to put together a box full of love... and Sharpies.
I had to explain to my coworkers that I wasn't just obsessed with Sharpies, but that there was a thought — a really big one — behind it. After I told everyone about my idea of drawing on my wall and after all my Facebook friends had seen my cute Valentines gift, I suddenly realized...
Oh, sh*t. There's no way back now.
I'm a planner. There was no way I would possibly allow myself to start doing this without a plan. Using one of my favorite toys, my iPad Pro, together with the Apple Pencil and the Procreate app, I started drawing my vision for my bedroom wall. I really needed a solid place to start and use as reference.
I need a giant compass.
Besides a box of Sharpies and a rose, in order to draw mandalas, I also needed a compass — in this case a giant one. After browsing Home Depot, I ended up getting a few things and making my own for about $4. It worked beautifully!
Well, I definitely can't go back now.
This is fun!
I think I can finish this in another 2 weeks.
Maybe in 3 to 4 weeks.
Maybe I should've picked a smaller wall...
Do I really have to finish this?
What the f*** was I thinking?
Omg... I did it.
