These are four of my Self Portrait postcards. I used a sketch that I made on holiday using one eye, one nose and half a mouth cut out from a magazine sketching in the rest of the face to match. I then played with these in PSP9 and printed them out on silky fabric and free machined into them.
I can tell you now that I am kidding myself here as I have completely ignored my slight double chin and most of the wrinkles, but I did look a bit like this once perhaps. What it does show is my love for the computer, sketchbook and the sewing machine and my ability to kid myself perhaps? Oh, yes, I nearly forgot, I do have a rather large mouth.
But it is all in fun and has taken me longer than you can imagine to decide on the form these were going to take. Funny how some things seem more difficult than others? One of them is so disappointing I'm going to re-do it and maybe I will also make another one instead of the bottom one. We'll see how it goes this evening while my husband is at choir practice. They must be posted tomorrow whatever happens.
