Beautiful! You've inspired me to re-do my bathroom....I've been looking for just the right idea, and you've given it to me! This will be my next Fall project.
Your walls are ragged?
No problem stamping on the glazed finish?

Thank you so much ! I should have specified, sorry ! The walls were a simple semi-gloss cream color first. After laying out a guideline with a large yardstick and level to tape off (that took some patience in this un-level old farmhouse!), using acrylic craft paint on felt I stamped the border then the random leaf images. I used the vine stamp unmounted, it was a bit easier to line up. Let that dry for 24 hours, then I moved on to the painting technique. I sponged on the glaze/paint mixture, then immediately "crumpled off" the mixture with crinkled up pieces of brown packing paper. You must work quickly, keep a wet edge and rotate the paper often, don't let it get too saturated with paint, either (it won't give the crisp crinkled lines/remove the paint as well). By the way, it only took me two days to complete this room. Have fun painting / stamping your own rooms !
