This is our Sydney, she's got personality BIG TIME. When it's hot outside, she loves to play in her Water Wiggle. She's such a blast to watch!
1. I used the sketch to embellish this two-page layout.
2. I increased the circles/flowers to five, and extended them down the entire background block. I used copic markers to colour the flowers.
3. I wanted to create movement, like the water droplets in the photos. I stole some silver wire from my husbands fly-tying supplies and "sandwiched" the wire between two raindrops. I attached the wires so that the droplets created a "spray" pattern around the flowers.
