When I saw Susi's post this morning the title and the snowman brought a memory back from around thirty years ago.
My youngest son who was only 3 at the time had a role in the Play School concert. He sang his solo really loudly and I had tear in my eye!
"Let's build a snowman,
Round and fat,
Let's make some snowballs,
throw them at his hat"
The only thing is that as he got to the last line the children at the side threw cotton wool snowballs - lots!!! Although during rehearsals he had been told that this would happen the children had only pretended to throw snowballs.
He turned and gave them such a disgusted look that he brought the house down….
….but I spotted the tears in his eyes!
I was feeling brave enough to paint straight into my journal. The snowflakes are using a stencil and the snowballs are some dry embossed paper.
This is my latest entry to Chrissie's Art Journal Journey challenge - Winter Wonderland.
Oh! and I still get a lump in my throat when I think of this!!
Thanks for looking, Chris
