FINALLY! MY PAINT BY NUMBERS IS DONE! EASY 1-2-3 ART!
Truthfully, Aladdin wasn’t perfect, I just remember him that way… In fact, if you ask Hubby, Aladdin was a ‘jerk’. They hated each other, for obvious reasons. They were both my one and only MAN. Or so they both thought… And, they never got over the rivalry. Aladdin would snort and run away every single time he saw Hubby. Or, he’d turn his butt and totally not do anything Hubby asked.
Hubby would yell and scream and wave things, but Aladdin simple ignored him.
Anyway, I know Aladdin was not a perfect horse but he was perfect for me.
PAINT BY NUMBERS
I sent them Aladdin’s photo and a few weeks later, the kit arrived.
Oh, you could choose which type of ‘style’ you wanted for your photoart, too. It could be regular or comedic or … I picked the regular type.
Anyway, it arrived and then sat… for months.
SUMMER VACATION PROJECT
Hmmmmm. The girls are here for the summer and they seem bored sometimes while I’m working (after they’ve done their chores, mind you…).
AHA! Girls, you can do the Paint By Numbers!
They seemed thrilled.
But, they did it anyway since I received both a paper and canvas version. One each.
The older stepchild worked on the canvas while the younger one was given the paper – typical. Older child dominates.
Anyway, they sat in their room and started.
Older child zipped through the task and presented to me her finished piece. I noted that the sky was the same as the top of the trailer and it didn’t make sense. So, she fixed it.
The younger child was obsessed. (We are going to have to work on this…) It took HOURS for her to get each line perfect. Finally, I told her to ‘pick her battles’ or we’d never leave the house again… So she finished it. Note the way her trailer mixes into the sky – I think that was a flaw in the design of the paint by numbers kit. Older child mixed in grey to separate the two but the kit didn’t have any separation.
Now, I have two Aladdins that look surprisingly alike even though two hands (one lefty, one righty) performed the artistry.
Hmmmm. I guess it is formulaic. However, I am sure that if I did it, the work wouldn’t come out nearly as nice.
