Pictionary Chalkboard Art

Did a fun activity with Tim drawing on our chalkboard wall we have in our living room. Played a little Pictionary game where we picked words(from Word Generator) and drew the same thing together. Our goal was to fill in cute drawings in the wall space much as possible.

We're both artists and there still lot of things we just can't draw things properly, but interesting to see how each of us interpret things.

With this lovely backdrop we had a little photo session playing around with lightings. As for the cupcake, Tim got them for me to wish me happy birthday. Thank you!
