How to Paint an Elephant (or what have you)

So this is old school painting and I'm pretty sure people were using this technique before I was even born.  It's definitely nothing new under the sun but when I posted a pic on Instagram, I received some how-to questions.

Here is how you paint an elephant with no artistic ability whatsoever.

All you need to do is rummage up an old bulky overhead projector (thanks Dad!)

Tape off the wall using your projection

Add Paint

Peel off the tape (preferably while the paint is still wet)

And boom.  Instant elephant.

Doesn't get much easier than that!  Stay tuned for a full reveal of Landon's safari animal room in about a month or so when we can afford baseboards :)
