Theme Thursday - People with Hats

My assignment was to create a round robin journal page in the zetti style and to incorporate a photo of myself into the artwork. My heart raced. I began to sweat. I procrastinated as long as I possibly could and even longer. Finally I decided that I had to grab hold of the task. I started with the background just allowing myself to freely add paint and those famous black and white tails and borders. Hey, this was fun I thought to myself. I located a baby photo of myself and laughed as I affixed it atop the little girl's body. Then I added elements that I felt were somehow symbolic of my loves and passions. Well, here is the end result. It's my entry for this week's Theme Thursday challenge.

This came out so adorable! Love that you used a photo of yourself as a wee baby! (and not a cranky baby either, I didn't think you would be - I figured a smiley babe)
