4 cards to go - August 25, 2016
Well, even though there are 8 cards out there yet, I'm posting my pics and process
Back! The details got tiny! i hadn't realized until I'd printed them off... But I stuck with it, not knowing which details to get rid of... Hope you all have magnifying glasses!
The self portrait was needle felted. It's not nearly as amazeballs as some needle felted faces/portraits I've seen, but I've been working up to realism... I'm not quite there yet! I still found it to be a close likeness, despite the giant eyes and nearly invisible nose. The glasses were made of plastimake, a product out of australia that is basically just meltable plastic pellets. You melt them with hot hot water, and mould away! It's pretty neato-misquito.
And the woven back ground was actually woven from yarn I hand spun as a spun self portrait in a challenge we did a few years ago. It's a pretty small amount of fabric... but I didn't need a lot for this!
I took these images, and altered them as needed to get the front and back as you see them in a photoshop-like program.
Once I had all that done, I printed onto sticker paper, and stuck the stickers onto heavy card stock. It was a little tricky getting things lined up, but found a way that was both mostly successful, and quick.
And that was that.
