The project was 'my sample self'.
I have never really done a self portrait - but hey, i thought it a nice way to introduce ourselves to each other. I began with a snap shot, then used 'sketch me' app to create a simplified line drawing.
The next part was to select 5 colours, the paint swatch department always a joy to visit.
After admiring Lucky Jackson's work (see last week's post) i was inspired to stitch myself..
This happened first - it getting more complicated as i went (which usually seems to happen).
But i also did this one - which i rapidly finished off when i had to 'pack up'.
I really love this sort of thing digitally printed on silk and whipped up into a shift dress.. Hmm, maybe i can order a swatch on Spoonflower or something???
This was how my 'sample self' finished up.
