Wall Mural - Kids room

I've been having trouble deciding how to theme my kids' room because I have a boy and a girl and they share the room. Most things are too boyish for Chrysta and too girlish for Zak... They are both still scared of the dark, so Planets and night sky was right out!... So I put their bunkbeds back together and put Chrysta on top and Zak on the bottom.

Rooms theme is... *drum roll* Dragonflies/Sky and Froggies/Pond...

I bought some plain white jersey sheets that I am going to customize with stencils for each of them so that they fit the theme without spending a gazillion dollars. And I've started their wall mural... I just started this yesterday and have a LOOONG way to go. Hope to update often though :D

"IN" the tree you'll see little hooks, Chrysta has a pet-net that hangs there and *SHOULD* look like a big bushy tree full of stuffed animals when its done and hung up :D

Oh dear god yes! Please fly, drive, take the train down and help!!! Seriously... cmon down, I'll cook ya dinner and you can paint! I bought all these cool paintbrushes and sponges and (basically all my money from the beatles albums is gone LOLOL) and some stencils...

Im haing serious issues with perspective and what else to put on the wall... So far we have a frog, one grasshopper, and three dragonflies and one enormous tree :D and ummm the rest is still white/eggshell.

I dont want butterflies, no ladybugs, I just want dragonflies. Im anti-otherbugs LOL

Ideas would be great here :D

Okay, just a couple of thoughts if I were there with you (I like my steak medium rare) I would by a couple of bottles of blue acrylic, water them down and dip a wet rag in the paint, then I would take that rag and "wash" a sky on the walls and ceiling....instant ooomph!! :D I would also put tall blades of grass along the base of the walls. If you want to put leaves in the tree without painting them all individually, you can make a stamp out of a potato (I did this in a picket fence room before) or you can just sponge a big bushy look , like I did in the Winnie the Pooh room in this link..........
