Good day, Everyone! Looking for a fun and creative way to do some artistic self reflection? For a modern take on a self portrait, try out this project by MMA Children’s Instructor, Kinga Borondy!
For this project you’ll need:
- A printed photograph of someone’s face, either your own or a friends or relatives
- Colored papers: Junk mail, wrapping paper, old greeting cards, magazines, catalogues,
Glue the photo to a larger piece of paper; you can use cardstock, a stiff mailer or the back of an old cereal box, just make it large enough to glue paper around the picture.
Enhance the “selfie” images using paper materials, markers, crayons or paint.
See Kinga’s selfie examples below:
Notes from Kinga: I picked both a black and white photograph and a color photograph. I surrounded the B&W photo with colored papers and the color photo with newsprint. I liked using just the cut papers.
Thanks for sharing, Kinga! This project really has endless possibilities and will create a beautiful piece of reflective self expression! Feel free to share and tell us about your Enhanced Selfie by tagging us @maudmorganarts on Instagram!
