Look! what just popped into my email box.......

Helene Bogren - Self Portrait

Hi Shazza!
I wanted to use this opportunity to make a portrait of myself using my favorite colors, embellishments symbolizing my different hobbies and a picture of me scrapping. The picture in the frame to the right is a photo transfer and the flowers (Hemerocallis) are pictures taken in our garden last summer. My hobbies are gardening, reading books and magazines, needlework and fashion. The fairy is symbolizing my wild fantasy… (I did one portrait of my husband too and you are welcome to take a look at them both at
Cheers Helene
