First up is the photo and drawing of Theo and then Ellie.
I left off Theo's hands because I was hoping the arms would go off the background. See below for more info on that.
One of the things Lisa suggests is to simplify the picture. That's why I'm not including the long hair down Ellie's face. I sure wouldn't want to cut out that piece! And the dolls won't be included. I may have to fuss with her arms a bit but I'll see how it goes.
And here is one of Theo's "wacky" pictures. I will be going back to the drawing and copying his little hands and adding them. Hum, I wonder if I need to add the shorts.... he looks really long waisted here! I will probably cut off some of each sleeve to make it work. Aimee, his mom, thought it was terrific. (I do too!)
Here's one of Lisa's samples:
How fun is this! She also has a different, easy way to finish the piece. I'm looking forward to finishing this wall hanging. It's so much fun to do! Below is the little one Karen put together of her brother and his wife. Except the picture is their engagement picture from years ago!
There were several more "pictures" that I would have liked to snap photos of but just didn't get to it.
So besides that how did I do on my goals this week? Not bad. Didn't get them all done but I did get many of them done.
