girls from the past ["made this myself" Week]

23 comments

For the 3rd day of this "Made This Myself" Week, I thought I'd do some illustrations: a flapper from the roaring 20s, and a groovy girl from the 60s! I'm not entirely happy with the end results (a little too sloppy), but I did say from the beginning that my projects weren't going to be about perfection. They were just something different and fun to do. So there - that justifies the sloppiness ;)

Are you blogging about something you've made this week? Then add your post to the Linky at the end of yesterday's post! I'd love to see it!

I think these are super creative and lovely. "Perfection" is highly overrated.

You have quite a skill there.

So beautiful! Can you give more detail as to how you made them/ inserted the backgrounds, etc, or did you do it all by hand?
