Self Portrait


My local quilt/fiber art shop challeged it's customers to do a self portrait. A while back a took a collage class from Linda Misa. It was paper collage, but Linda said the technique could also be done on fabric. I've been wanting to try this for some time and this challenge gave me the opportunity to give it a whirl. It was a lot of fun.....I wish I would have taken pictures of the process because I didn't think it would turn out. The fabric bubbled from the gel medium, but, I was able to iron it pretty flat. I also covered the entire figure with organza. Hope the picture turns out ok.
