I made a stencil of my face and I didn't know what to do with it. So after much thinkin' and sleepin', I decided to put it on a pillow, wallet, and purse. I'm planning to paint everything blue, but my lips (which will be pink!! (i love flamingo pink Tongue) and then put pink flat sequins all over my lips and then make a felt flower to put somewhere on my head.  Cheesy <----thats on the purse. After that, i plan to make some letters out of felt and stick it somewhere. Roll Eyes hmmmm, now where else should i put my face on....undies.....shirt.....jeans.... Wink

I want to know how to do that!!  I am just beginning and my friend wants me to put her face on a shirt for her birthday, and I tried to do it, but I just can't seem to get everything worked out without there being any islands or anything..... maybe I'll ask around here and someone will be able to help!

Actually it's quite easy. You just need to make sure that you take a picture where the background is white. Try a well lighted part of your house where theres a white wall. I stood a against my bathroom door, right up against it with my back touching it so I wont get any shadows. Grin I hoped this helped! Roll Eyes

i did one of my face earlier this morning. it took forever. it was just an old picture on a dark background. it wasn't a problem, but then i didn't get the outline of my hair. (i don't like it anyway  Grin) about the islands...you can screenprint it, or you can use the supercheap way with netting and waterproof glue. or cut the stencil out of tape, and then stick it to whatever you're putting the face on. (and the best part of that is that if you don't like an eye...RIIIIIP!!)

Thanks - I might try the white background thing.  I just couldn't seem to get the right concept and would cut the right thing out on half my face, but on the other half, I would cut the reverse so it turned out all wonky!  The eyes were also a little bad, but I think if I use pink_seatbelt's advice about the tape, everything might turn out alright. 

Thanks for the help!

take a needlepoint hoop (67 cents at hobby lobby) and put some tulle on it. netting works good too. now print out your picture and place it underneath your hoop with fabric on it. trace your picture onto the fabric. now glue on the fabric where you don't want your paint to go. when the glue dries, paint it
and whallah! you have...a beautiful little painting of your face!

hope this helps
