A Selfie Anyone?


Have you seen youngsters taking selfies? Yes, indeed, I can often see them at my evening bus home.
 When I was young we had to go to a photo booth, some things seems to be easier today. I made a sketch instead. After taken a pic with the mobile, I won't show it, it's so difficult to take profile photos of yourself!

Challenges:
Moo- Mania: Anything Goes
Mix it monthly: The profile


Materials used:
DQWV cardstock, Liquitex Gesso, Derwent charcoal pens and hairspray as fixative :)

Thank you so much for visiting, it's much appreciated! Hope you'll have time for some relaxing crafting this weekend, I'll try to squeeze in some time in to the crafty corner. I've had a busy week and missed it.

Love and hugs
Maarit

  10. What an interesting idea! I've often seen people on trains and buses taking 'selfies' - and my 21 year old daughter too! A profile 'selfie', though, that's difficult! Your sketch rises to the challenge. I love the texture on it and the way you capture your profile. xx

  16. Oh yes a profile is really tricky, but you did a great job! Love your story around this and how you place the b&w painting onto that red background to let it pop! ♥ Conny Mix It Monthly
