O so big!

Really big things and funny things must be shared!!
first, the biggest sign I've ever painted!
This was a custom order for sweet Julie in Scotsdale AZ...she'll be sending a photo of it hung in her shop, I can't wait to see it!
It took a long time in the making...trying to adjust the size so it wouldn't be so costly to ship then there was alot of 'math' involved in the resizing of the design...but here it is!
this was taken before I added the silver german glass glitter & did a little more distressing...

When it was finished I wanted to get more photos of it and to capture just how large it was. I asked my darling
Hannah



to hold it for a little photo shoot...she huffed a bit but then agreed. I had no idea she was making these faces as I was clicking away, trying to get the best shot....
oooo, the little devil!



finally she gave me ONE good one!!!
Hannah, after two gigs (a first and a last!!) ...your modeling days are over!!! ps....Scroll down to my last post and get in on the CSN giveaway!!!

Two beauties in these pictures, Paula! Your Hannah is gorgeous. I didn't realize from the first picture just how big the sign was ~ Wow! Did you read Miss Mustard Seed wrote something about sending things through Greyhound? Yes, Greyhound the bus. Might be worth looking into if they are cheaper than Fedex or UPS.

Oh my . . . that is a biggin', Paula! Like a lot of others have mentioned, wasn't at all expecting the sign to be that large. Hannah is a gorgeous girl who obviously has a cute sense of humor.

The sign is amazing. Beautiful work as usual.

Hi Paula,
Wow the sign is huge! It looks great! Hannah is beautiful! I got a kick out of her silly faces! My girls use to do that too! Hannah's sweetness and funny faces brought back memories of my girls when they were her age...Thanks Hannah!
Have a sweet day,
Big hugs~Elizabeth

Your little Hannah is a beauty, making faces or NOT!..... You're going to have to build her a castle, where you can keep her, until she's about 95. :-)

Love the sign. I know you said it was big, but I had no idea how BIG until I saw Hannah holding it....now that's HUGE!..and perfectly perfect.

Thanks so much for popping over and leaving such an encouraging comment. I'm thrilled to have it finished. :-)

Huggies,

Spencer
