Time for PLAY!
I've been thinking about
Have you seen Katherine Roumanoff's portraits?
really really fun...and inspiring!
Kathy's Header has a quilt she did in Self portraits, here
her post about this project here
I've Never done a portrait in fabric...
Want to experiment along with me?
style wise, Anything goes
Let's do a portrait of ourselves in fabric,
16" X 20"
and have a little showcase of them all...
This is a new experience for me,
let's try something NEW together!!
Leave me a comment if you want to play along...
if enough wanna play,
perhaps I put up a little blog
where we can all show our process and learn from each other...
if you want to contribute a tutorial of a portrait you have done, let me know
would love some guests bloggers on this topic...
I will post about the progress of mine.
Have you done a portrait in fabric?
send me a link...
Kathy York has a cute one on her blog here
Nellie has a fun one here
Okay this looks really fun! and there is Trudi too......
Now how do we start?
stay tuned... Working on that....
Okay, I'm signed in now and have my preliminary sketch done. This is going to be fun!
I have to decide on a photo that will work with this. I will probably use photoshop and play with the photo. I use a projector to enlarge designs and it is also a great way to make things more simplistic and primitive.
I found I could posterize a photo in Corel, so that may be helpful. I'm looking forward to this!
I did one a while back, you can find it at...
I wanted to see how close I could get without using anything but fabric and thread. I hope to try this again sometime and take it a little further
I would love to play too...I do pet portraits mostly, but I have done people too....this sounds like fun! Melinda
Great job! I became your follower too.
