Self Portrait Chloe & Blake Style
I was inspired recently while reading one of my newest friend's blog. She is what I like to call my blog pal, instead of pen pal, (did you ever have one of those when you were young ?) Her name is Louise and she lives in Melbourne Australia. It's winter over there right now, so her kids are in school. One of her daughter's teacher's, had the kids lay down on a large piece of paper, traced them, and let them go to town painting themselves.
The pictures turned out pretty funny. The sun was in the kids eyes as they were laying down waiting for Momma to put down the camera and trace them. Patient little one's they were, especially since most of their days involve Momma clicking away lots of photo's.
I figured this would be a great summer afternoon activity for Chloe and Blake. I ended up using my good pattern drafting paper, it's pretty thick weight, and it was the only paper that I had alot of, and that had a large width to it. Don't worry, there is lots left of it, and it's pretty inexpensive.
The End Results...
