Grow UP/ Pencil Line Sketch #82


This is my take on Sketch #82, I submitted this for their weekly contest.

My sisters daughter is on the left and 2 of my brother 6 are on the right. My parents own alot of property and we always go exploring, and I (as usual)am looking for great photo opportunities. The kids are such willing models as you probably can tell. My own children always hated me taking their photos. Right after I took the bottom photo of the 3, Walker fell in the big tire and hurt him self. I picked him up and carried him over to the barrel to check him out. Look closely at Walker's you can see that he has been drawing on his legs with an ink pen. His older sister told him to draw tattoo's on himself.

Both of your lo's are great. I just love the bright colors. The pictures of the kids are so nice too. They really lend themselves to be in a lo. Your work is a great example of how the right picture and a LO really compliment each other.

This layout is gorgeous! I had to giggle about Walker and the drawings. That is what my son does...besides drawing on everything in the house he always has drawings on himself, lol.
