This is my Self Portrait Challenge piece. I call it Flight of Ideas. It is supposed to be what I look like on any given day. I always say that I have ideas pouring into my head, and I can't do them all. This is my version of how I feel. I was going to put wings on everything going into my head, but, settled for silk wings on the lightbulb. I fused silk pieces together to make each wing. I am starting to bead rayon dyed ribbon 'hair' on my head. I have done all of the background quilting I plan to do. I glued the mirror glasses on, and tomorrow, I will catch the edges with some thread. I'm a quilter through and through, and never trust attachments to glue alone.
And of course, it wouldn't be finished without beads. I have some kind of cool earrings.. stars with hanging moons.. would be perfect for 'my' ears
