meet the family!

i've mentioned before that i'm taking a class in self-portraits, right? well this weeks' task was to draw a characture/cartoon of yourself. it was super fun...you start by sticking a piece of acetate to a mirror and drawing around your features, you then copy this onto regular paper {we did this by holding both pieces up against a window and tracing}, finally you exagerate whichever features you feel like...et voila!

as you can see...i can't draw for toffee...but i enjoyed this project so much i just had to share it with you! it was maybe so much fun because i made my family take part too...lol...so here they are...i proudly present:
my beautiful sistermy desirable {if a little wonky} husbandand my cheesy grinned {always smiling} brother in law!thanks guys for joining me in this little task...it made me giggle so much...and still does when i think about it now!!!
love you all xxxxx

Oh My Gosh!!!! This is sooooo cool! I love that your family did this with you and I'm thrilled that you had fun doing it! What a great way to express yourself and have a giggle or two in the process.

I think they ALL look amazing!

Heh - I do like those!

I have absolutely zero talent at drawing - but massive admiration for anybody that can. In my mind, that's PROPER art, that is!

Hello
I passed by your blog just to say that is really a very informative blog, with several varieties and no doubt you have an excellent blog ... My blog is still young and needs to be disclosed and for that I must exert myself enough.
Keep up the great work.
