Hi there Oddlets!
Linda here with a fun home decor frame project to share with you.
My daughter (who is 6) is always watching me color and loves to comment on the people I color in (which I do a lot of being on this Design Team!). She loves discussing what they’re doing or imagining what they might be like if they were real people (such an imagination!) so I thought it’d be fun to create a little frame for her bedside table.
I stamped them all onto some X-press It cardstock, masking off as I went, so I could overlap them a little, and then colored in with Copic markers.
I left the rest of the frame simple and white so the images would stand out more.
To ensure that the people all looked cohesive, I duplicated colors across their pieces of clothing, as you can see here:
The blue that is in Sunny Mae‘s dress is the same as Photo Kaylee’s skirt and shoes, as well as Sweater Kaylee‘s sweater. The greens in Hipster Kody’s bag, t-shirt and slouchy hat are the same as Sweater Kaylee‘s leggings and boots (with an added darker color), etc.
I tried to give them all different skin tones. I tried adding a very pale yellow to Photo Kaylee‘s skin, to give her an Asian appearance, Sweater Kaylee is supposed to look Eastern-European (or maybe even Polish–dark hair, pale skin), Kody has (my attempt at) an Indian or Sri Lankan skin tone, and Sunny Mae is Irish 🙂 Obviously they could all be from different areas, but I always like to imagine where they’re from as I color them in. Am I the only one who does that?
Well that’s it for me, this frame only took me about an hour to color in, such a fun way to make something custom and fun for the kids!
I’d better run now, I have to make another frame of Some Odd Girl friends for my other daughter’s bedside table 🙂
