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,
  • Newspaper
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Step 1:

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.

Step 2:

Enhance the “selfie” images using paper materials, markers, crayons or paint.

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!
