Finally - Paint on myself that I like!

Post by Vashti on Sat Jul 02, 2011 6:22 pm

Ok brace yourselves. I'm about to show you..dun dun duuuhhh...ME! I finally painted myself in a way that I don't think I look horrid. I think it helped to pick colors that are complimentary to my hair. Ok, critiques welcome:



I was inspired by Heather B's video of her Spring Garden Face Here.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mHZQLKb1nNg&feature=channel_video_title She is much better at all of this than I!! I have a lot of work to do on my tear drops (that's why you don't see any), and my dots (details, accents, etc.) leave much to be desired. Her flowers were very simple, and I'm thankfully finding a use for my Full Bloom Rainbow Cake that I got last month.

Here's a pic of the left side:



Now, if only I can get some ideas for what to paint around my glasses!



Unfortunately, my replacement frames won't be here until the middle of next week at least, so the kiddos get to see my Jerry-rigged Professor Trelawney goggles (note my lenses squished inside the sun glass frames) on the 4th at the park. Oh, and I learned something else...Wolf paint on my lips just makes me want to lick them! Where's my chapstick???

The painting is great and I also like it to see you. It's nice to have a face with the name.

Very cool! I never met anyone named Vashti before, Except for the queen in the book.
I only know this because I am jewish, and we celebrate "Purim" (the jewish-dress up-paint-your-face-holiday)

I think your spring garden looks fabulous! And your hair is gorgous. . .I've wanted red hair since first grade, it is my favorite, but it won't go with my skin tone Sad I'm super jealous Smile
