One of my fiber art group challenges for this year was to create a self-portrait from a Selfie, using any technique method - our choice, the finished work to measure 11" x 14".
I began with a color photo (fig. 1). In Paintshop Pro, I went to greyscale (fig. 2) and then decreased color saturation (my computer said the greyscale version consisted of 254 grey colors) to two colors - black and white (fig. 3). I worked it up in black and white cotton. I added a little grey to change up the bottom of the composition, keeping it as simple and graphic as I could. I quilted it with 100 wt. silk and 40 wt. cotton thread. I loved doing this so much I wanted to do the whole family. My next selfie work using the same photo will be a color fabric collage. This will be like painting with fabric so it will be a lot trickier.
