Soul journal self portrait

Oh my word before I start I just realised that I have to go back and work on this spread, you'll never guess what i left out????? anyway....
Sarah's final prompt was to do a self portrait using your fingers only. This was HARD. Here's me, for those of you who don't know me!
and here's my drawing. Now before you say, Ha! You've cheated! I used my nai to outline the features, it was hard but my nails are longer and stronger than they have been for a while, funny how that happens on holiday. I finger painted the background too.
Here's a close up.
and what's missing I hear you ask.......... Glasses!!!!!! See how much I take them for granted. I will have to add them, they are so part of me! Don't forget to sign up a few posts back for my bookmark give away, my birthday is tomorrow and I will be drawing the winner then. Love Carol t

A self portrait is daunting enough..but with fingers??!! Well done anyway. Have a happy birthday and I look forward to the draw.

Well done! Glasses or not it is a great achievement to do a self portrait. Hats off to you for doing it with your fingers!

What a fabulous self portrait. The finger painting only sounds like a challenge but I bet it was also a lot of fun, getting all messy with paint!

Hmm I wish I could have bribed you into doing mine. Can't believe you did this with you fingers. Great job!
