My Papa

 Had so much fun doing this page.  All came together when I saw Beccy's Place image, called "Advice from Dad" (this month's freebie on her blog).  And, then saw a challenge for a favourite song or movie.

Love this old song, "Oh mm Pa-pa" I remember my parents playing records when I was young and this was one of them, sung by Eddie Fisher (for those too young to remember him, you may remember a couple of his wives, Debbie Reynolds and Elizabeth Taylor)

Background is Dylusions paint, there is also some gel pens and PaperArtsy Chalk paint.

The image has been coloured with Copic pens and layered after I printed and coloured various parts of the image , then paper pieced them together.

I have used silver paper for the eggs they are sitting on, paper flowers, butterflies and gems together with pencil shavings for the dirt.
