CraftyTart take 3

Challenge three at Craftytarts was to create a page or OTP (off the page) project inspired by the little people in our lives.
My little people are now all taller than me, but I had a lovely two days - that's how long it took me to decide- digging through photos of 'days of old'.
I settled for Cody playing in a banana box in the end, just because in every photo of him he was up to some sort of 'fun' and always looked to be loving every moment of it!

My photo had such a cluttered background that no amount of photo shopping made it look much better, so I did the unthinkable and cut Cody out of the photo!! Yeeks!!! I have never done this before, mostly because usually the background tells its own story but also because I do not feel confident about scrapping a cut out photo. Anyway, I threw caution to the wind and did it!

Cody loved Dr Seuss books at this age, so I decided to use a Dr Seuss ex cert from 'Cat in the Hat'
as the basis for my LO....
Look at me, Look at me, Look at me now...Its fun to have fun, but you have to know how!
I had fun moving out of my comfort zone and creating this page! Thanks again Craftytart!!
A huge congratulations to Tanya and Grace who come in first and second this week WTG girls!!

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think
