The Three Muses Challenge - Water

What seems like weeks ago,Ms Terri Kahrs offered the above freebie to her friends. I have been waiting for a chance to use it ever since. My impatience level must have been high because I now see that it was posted on her blog less than a week ago.
Everyone with experience of babies and toddlers knows that their output of dribble far outweighs their size so the picture caused the idea to take shape in my weird brain.
So it's a big thankyou to Terri. The image has been coloured and altered a little. The umbrella, boots and frog are from Kay Hadfield and the background is by Fiddlette.

  12. So darling, Marie. I really like the "juice" coming out of the instrument. I was always horrified to see the trumpet players (my daughter and my granddaughter, for instance) had little white hankies to drain the spit out onto during a performance.
