August Challenge: Whisk

August Self Portrait Challenge: Whisk. What this means is that you need to create an image that uses a whisk – sounds easy, right? But we’re challenging you to be as creative as possible – try your best to stay away from “safe, easy” images and go for something more. Think outside of the box and make the most interesting image you can using this month’s “suggested item” – WHISK.
