Actually not doing the dog shape balloons attached to the ground was more of a relieve than a sad feeling, in fact I liked the final sign way better than my original idea :)
For this project I had help all the way from Switzerland from my favorite cousin Hector! He wanted to help me in some way, so I ask him to draw Mr. Poodle and I for our Save the Dates, but due to bad timing we end up not being able to do the sketch and doing just a picture of our legal ceremony.
Anyways, he did started the drawing and showed it to me on the web-cam, here's a screen-shot of him showing me the first stage of the sketch.
[ So cute! ]

and he send me the file almost done, I though then I could use it for the SIGN! I just needed to change my arm to hold the balloons! so I draw it on a BIG piece of plywood ( Because I wanted them to be real-size)
After that FIL cut the edges for me and I started painting
Since the jigsaw left stains on the white plywood I re painted all of it
Pick my Black paint and started the real painting =)
This was a fairly easy project and I TOTALLY loved the final result, My cousin did such an awesome job with our faces, I think Mr. Poodle looks SO MUCH like him <3
And here you can see it on the trial run!
At first I was kind of afraid the project was going to be too time consuming, because I did finish it only a few days before the wedding but it end up being very a lot more simple and less time consuming tan what I expected.
Did you get surprised about the complexity of projects after finish them? In a good or bad way?
