"Never be afraid to try something new because life gets boring when you stay within the limits of what you already know".
Introducing... Coulson Macleod (CM) does 'something different'. Inspired by our best-selling 'Wise Words' designs that feature lots of quotes relating to all sorts of hobbies & interests.
We pick a topic & have a go at it. Hilarity ensues. Hidden talents are revealed.
This week's topic was 'Art' so each member of the team had to draw a self-portrait. Out came the paper, pencils & charcoal on a rather unusually hot & sunny weekend in Northamptonshire, UK. Europe was experiencing a record-breaking heatwave with temperatures of up to 41°C that media outlets referred to as 'the tongue of fire' (no, we're not entirely sure who comes up with these names either).
Picture us with our artist easels in the blazing sunshine (if we had easels).
Take a look at the fruits of our labour below.
Can you guess which member of the CM team each masterpiece represents? Everyone was in absolute awe of Natalie's secret skills shown in her incredibly realistic portrait - Leonardo Da Vinci eat your heart out. We would also like to add that Hannah isn't bald in real life. Drawing hair is particularly tricky.
Join us on our mission to try something different & send us your 'selfie' creations using the hashtag: #somethingdifferentcm
Whether you're a novice or pro, it's all about having fun. We'll share our favourites on our social media channels & pop a free sample card* in the post to you to say thank you!
Are you a painter, sculptor, art critic or curator? Then the 'Wise Words - Art' print was made just for you.
Next time, we have a go at baking. Watch this space for some real show stoppers that Mary Berry herself would approve of & probably some interesting 'Pinterest fails', too.
