Hello everyone!

"Lights Camera Action"

Now that I have 3 children, it is very interesting to watch them and see their different personality develop. Is it not true that the first born is usually the cautious one because both parents were probably all of that child because it was the first one? And is it not true by the 3rd child there is no time to take a breath let alone "fuss" over things of ZERO importance which makes kids more resilient, easy going and spontaneous? This is what is going on in this picture.. it sums up exactly what is happening with my 3 daughters. The oldest 2 are having ice cream. The first born wants the baby to try it but the look on her face is one of worry... while if you look at the middle child.. well she is having a great old time LOL No fear, no stress.. just waiting and hoping the baby drops it or something. And then we have the baby.. she's just going along for the ride, into everything and is growing at a much faster rate than the others.. lol She just wants that ice cream!! 

I cut the large Number Grid into smaller pieces and matted my photo on it. 
I painted it with Gesso and then coloured it with Ginger Peach Twinkling H2O's .  

I used once again Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste but in black this time. I used it with a stencil for some extra texture and interest.

  2. First of all congrats to your lovely daughters! Sometimes I think, your day must have more than 24 hours (I´ve seen your post at OUAS and understand but it´s sad and I hope you´ll return <3) - 3 children, a husband, household, blogging.... AND creating such stunning artwork! I love your work and be inspired by. Thank you!
    Have a nice weekend!

  3. Your so right!! With each child of mine they get a little less scared and a lot more daring!
    There is no way my daughter (first born) would have been able to go on such a large trampoline but my son ( fourth born) has been on it since he could crawl!!
    Love the black, white and pink in this layout and what an awesome photo too.
    Your girls are aimply adorable and look like they will be the best of friends in life and that's a huge credit to you.

  4. Glad to hear it's an ice cream in the photo, at first glance I thought it was a chilli! Lovely LO.

  5. Gidday! I saw this on FB and had to come by for closer views! It looks fabulous, love the texture and the chipboard behind your photo! Had a smile about you said about the girls and you are right about what you said! The first baby is wrapped in bubble wrap the second has bits of bubble wrap when you have time to find it and by the third one you have lost the bubble wrap!!! Have a wonderful celebrating your family today! Xx
