My daughter loves playing with sidewalk chalk.
Daddy loves it, too and someimes uses Abby as the canvas :o)
Hope I can get the tmplate to upload.
Also - Does anyone have a popsicle embellishment? I used a lollipop but the story really calls for a popsicle.
And I would love a piece of chalk embellishment - All I could find was a crayon.
Also - This is an 8*10 layout - All mine are because that's he size of the book I am trying to fill up at the moment!
Hope Y'all like it!

looks like it's a bit large - will come back later and fix and upload again. It's 2 pages, I'll split it up.

Adorable, Julie. Oh, the baby is cute too, LOL.
Here is a chalk. It's just a plain white one, but you can probably colore it in SBM. Hopy it helps. I may be able to do a popsicle today.
ps: Click on chalk to view, then right click and save as png.

There's a nice red popscicle in the template Summer Memories. You can upload the template to SM and Copy/Paste over to your Template. :)

Playing with sidewalk chalk *rules*!!! Kids really know how to live IMO. :D :D :D
Every heard of Sidewalk Chalk guy? One of the most amazing artists in human history IMO.
One of his pieces...
For my money he's right up there with Rembrandt and Monet.

WOW! (And to think it all gets washed away when it rains!)
I agree, he's quite an artist!
I have been sent e-mails with these pictures in, they are fantastic, so talented!
Oh, forgot to add, a great LO julie, and what a cutie.

woah ! when I scrolled down and saw the picture without reading, I thought it was a real fountain. That's just unbelievable !

I have a lot of those e-mails too. The guy is incredible. There is one where he painted himself painting, and you can hardly tell which is the painting and which is him.
Thank you for sharing, Corey.

Cute L/O Julie, Abby is a sweetie :)
Corey, I agree, have been sent pics of his artwork & it breaks my heart that it is not permanent, he should have them all posted in a museum somewhere, a very gifted guy indeed, have you seen the sandcastle sculptures also?, they are truly incredible also :)
Here are 2 sites ,but there are quite a few out there & worth checking out.:)
Oops made a mistake, they are Sand Sculptures, my apologies :)

I have seen those but I didn't realize it was the same guy. Just reinforces my belief that this man is truly one of the great masters. This guy is operating at the highest level of art. I put him fully on par with Mozart, Rembrandt, Einstein, and Gretzky. :)
I feel a right Git!
I am so sorry you thought the sand sculptures were by the sidewalk guy, I am afraid I must have led you astray, No it's not the same guy, I was saying I think they are incredibly clever also, so I do apologise for the mix up & will be careful with my messages in future, but I do agree with you,he is exceptional,no matter what he does :)

Ahhh, OK I see. Still a huge fan of those sand sculptures. I'd actually like to try that someday.

he is amazing.. now THAT is real trompe L'Oeil..it literally tricks the eye

Moonbeam, you don't know the half of it. His chalkworks are actually heavily distorted to create a 3D perspective, they only look "right" when viewed from one specific spot. So what looks like a 5 foot chalk piece is actually 14 feet long if you view it from the back. Hard to explain. Check out the following 2 pics of the same piece from different angles to see what I mean. (sorry for hijacking the thread julie :o )
I just *love* those pieces. So exciting and interesting. It's the art world equivalent of rock and roll. Restores my faith in the future of modern art frankly. :)

These pix are unbelievable! Thanks for sharing Corey.
And Julie, I love that layout! Thanks so much for sharing! There must be a million kid's pictures just like yours! No doubt, your layout will get lots of use. By the way, Abby's a doll! :p

This guy have an amazing talent, is a real Artist, thanks for sharing Corey and just to know where did he do this fantastic paints?
06-21-2006, 06:47 PM
As far as I know he is an American who moved to Italy and now travels to various festivals. Fairly eclectic type. In his FAQ he mentions he once even worked for NASA:
Note that despite what he says about spray fixatives I've seen a photo of him using one, so I assume though it's not routine that it's an occasionally useful tool for him.
