Self-Portraits

I love this self-portrait by Kay at Out of the Basement, part of the Interpret This challenge. She used an applique technique that I think is brilliant and practical. The background is a patchwork of scanned pages and art work, subtley done so that you have to look closely to see them. I have a feeling, just from reading her blog, that perhaps it is this way with Kay. She seems to be a very modest, low-key but extremely interesting and creative person.

I'd love to use these techniques someday in some small wall hangings. I have some great photos of the kids I'd love to do.

All the portraits so far are beautiful, and from what I "know" - based on their blogs - of the artists, really do reflect their personalities.
