Awhile ago I ordered Maria Elkin's DVD, Making Faces. The art quilt group in my guild is having a display of self portraits at our show in May and I thought that this would be the perfect time to try it. It's an excellent tutorial and I was rather pleased with the results. It's not quilted yet. That's the scary part.
This is my second attempt, the first one is below. You turn your picture into a grayscale with four levels in Photshop Elements. On my first one, I didn't have enough dark tones.
