Theresa met the Portrait Challenge

Self Portrait

FROM THERESA: This portrait was from a photograph which was changed by the stamp filter in Photoshop and printed out on a cotton sheet. The hair and glasses were stitched free form on a sewing machine and the other stitches were added by hand. The background is made up of bits of colored fabric which have been glued and sewn down onto the cotton. The piece was stretched around an 8″ x 10″ canvas.

  1. How cleaver to print it out like that! The embroidered detail is delicate, and the whole composition a masterpiece!
