So my 18 mo old decided yesterday to pilfer an apple from the kitchen. He took 1 itty bitty bite and then proceeded to throw it around the house like a ball.I took it away and it was beyond being able to eat. Now, we don't waste food in this house- so it became ART.

I haven't "painted" in YEARS. Here it goes.... (sorry it's crooked)



The darker blue is the apple print and there is argyle printed paper seeds and stem glued on. The lighter blue is decoupaged tissue paper with dark blue painted seeds and stems. Then I water colored around the apples because if I left it white, it would be too unfinished. I still have to seal it to finish it off. Grin

What do you think?

Ah, that is so awesome!  It looks really good.  And it will be so neat to tell him about when he's older.

Eh, I don't think I am keeping it. It doesn't really "go" with my decor. I just felt the urge to create and that's what happened. LOL
