February Challenge #2: Self-Portraits... Without A Camera

This week we'll explore Self Portraits.... without a camera. Any medium, any size, but no photographs, please. If your first instinct is to turn and run in the other direction, please reconsider! You can have a lot of fun with a theme like this: two-dimensional or three-dimensional, abstract or realistic, sketch, paint, collage or sew... explore the possibilities! Need some further inspiration? Check out these sites: Want to play? Create your self portrait before next Thursday and post it to your blog. If you're new to Inspire Me Thursday, leave a comment or send us an email with the name of your blog and your link and we'll get you added to the sidebar. We look forward to seeing your self portrait!

Well, I tried to add ATCs to my blog last night but my computer was cooperating, but I'll do it now, and then I'll work on the Photoless Self Portrait. Sounds fabulous! Please add me to your list if you can.
