Victoria of Bumble Beans Inc, is having a challenge for anyone wanting to join in.
The challenge is to take a photo and create yourself into a quilted piece.
I thought it would be fun to try, and wondering what I got myself into, lol.
I am not photogenic, seriously, so I avoid having my photo taken.
When I do, it is usually while kayaking or biking, so not the best for head shots.
I always have my hair pulled up, so I look bald in most of my photos.
Soooo, I finally found a way to get into my old photos that I had stored and will be going with the silly, bizarre version of myself;)
This was from a photo we did while on a trip in NH. This is my family, lol.
This is years ago, but it is a rare photo with my hair down. My daughter will be 25 this friday, so you can see how old this picture is. And no, I am not this mean, I was trying to look tough, lol.
This is what I did to myself with the magic of filters. This will give me a guideline for the piecing and I will use the original, as well. I am still not sure in which direction I will go with this, but it will probably end up as naive folk art;)
