I thought I’d missed the deadline for the UK Face & Body Convention Body comp (postal entry) but they extended it and as I finally have stopped face-painting EVERY day I wanted to try.
I only had a few spare days though, so luckily had a very kind friend (Kate) volunteer to model, and Mich to take photos. Then at short notice hubby (aka babysitter) went to sail a boat back from Germany, so I was baby-sitter less. Kate didn’t mind Finley being around, but I’m never doing a paint with him unaccompanied again. I locked him in the dining room with us and he proceeded to destroy it – toys and food everywhere – paying no attention to his books, music, even a dvd!
He finally settled down a bit when we ‘let’ him help the paint. Kate reckons it’s a free-form expression of the tornado that takes Dorothy to Oz!
So not an ideal situation; not much time and a distracting toddler around! Think we did it in 3 hours as Kate had to go to work (after a shower!).
As said, thanks to Kate for lending her body for 3 hours, and Michelle Workman for the pics.
Note the beautiful free-form chaos of the below-knee work by 2 month old Finley:)So was supposed to be Dorothy (dress & hair), tin man/ lion (1/2face & arm each),Emerald City (front), wicked witch (stripey sock with her creepy shadow of nose and hands).
The black & white start of the film on the farm with the tornado (other leg) and the rainbow in the tutu.
As you can see Mac, my MIL’s dog, decided to make a guest aappearance as Toto.
