This is a self-portrait done in water soluble pencils, dyes, paint, applique, beads, gel pen, and machine stitching.
I do fabric portraits, but hadn't done any images of myself. Ever.
It's not entirely an objective approach, but I added elements I love, such as deconstructed silk screening (my new thrill) and beads. I also felt free to leave out some wrinkles. (I figured if I do this for others, I can certainly do this for me)!
The fun part was to see if I could do this on a small scale. It was self limiting and went quick – this helped me to be extremely creative about it. I loved this challenge!
