Posing at the fire hydrant...


There's this fire hydrant that we pass by en route to the playground that I like to get the Gangster Gang (aka nephews + niece) to pose at. :)

The trick is to get them to give me a few good shots before they can go to the playground - that's when they really "cooperate" because the reward [= playground] is in clear sight. *winks*

Here, I managed to incorporate some of those Basic Grey birds with some Echo Park Paper ones - I don't know why I have so many birdies in my stash!*LOL*

The photos were fussy-cut and I used a graphite pencil to create a shadow for depth (cause I ran out of 3D foam!). I also doodled on the tree for a fun touch.

I also threw in a spade, ducks, car and trees to complete my whimsical scene.

P/s: Been travelling for the last 2 weeks...will play catch-up on blog commenting this week. :)
