The talented Kirsty Wiseman created a digital printout for the Studio Calico blog, which inspired me to change this photo, which I like because of the movement of the children but which had an uninteresting and busy background.
I overlayed the pattern and the butterfly with the original photo and got this. One of my favourite layouts at the moment.
When my daughter came home from school with this self portrait, my husband & I smiled at each other, as to say "so that's how she sees herself". The portrait is accurate enough, but if you look at it on its own, you'll probably guess that the subject has her roots in Africa instead of Asia. But with her cafe-au-lait skin tone (the photo is too bright as I overcompensated for taking the photo in a dark spot of the house), wide nose and full lips it's easy to get mistaken.
