Fannie Frog

Hello friends.  Just wanted to show you my new friend.














I've named her Fannie.  Fannie Frog.  I think it fits!  She's such a happy little thing, isn't she. 

I just took a store-bought 12 x 12 stepping stone and primed it with a dark green so that it will blend in with the grass, assuming I can get some to grow.  That's why all my pictures are taken in gravel, so you can't see my beautiful dirt yard!

Anyway, after priming the stone, I researched alot (and I mean alot) of pictures of frogs but none seemed to pop for me.  So out came the stack of newspapers and markers.  I drew and drew and the poor little thing kept getting fatter and fatter (I know that feeling) until I was satisfied with my drawing.  I then traced it onto the stone, painted, and spray sealed.

Now to find a spot in the yard for her.  Until next time, have fun!
