waiting for papa...



this lo is my assignment for color theory...the scrolls, flowers and titles were traced on a chipboard and handcut then painted/distressed.

this photo was taken one rainy summer afternoon by my phone camera(hence the quality wasn't that good)...my daughter was going back and forth,looking out the window,waiting for her papa because she was so worried that her papa would be wet when he gets out of the car..to distract her,i suggested to pretend we are having a photoshoot! (she loves pretend photoshoots btw)...this is the first shot and i could still see in her eyes the love and care she has for her father...hence the color scheme i chose..brown: evokes warmth whenever i think how she loves (color red) her papa...eventhough we do not have a lot of material things,we have our love to treasure(color gold)...i tinted the red acrylic with just a bit of brown to subdue the brightness of the red,so that it wouldn't overpower the photo

hidden journal reads:

francine,
we are so touched that at a very young age, you are already showering mommy and papa with so much love that we know,even out-of-sight, our love will always be there no matter what..

Marj, ang ganda nito. I love your daughter's eyes, the love really shines through. At ang daming techniques ha. I'm a lazy scrapper. I usually just cut and paste. But all those add-ons really beautify an LO no? I should try that sometime. Paturo!!!
