Tea Colored Self Portrait Or "How To Alter Yourself"

I am pushing the definition of Tea Tuesday to include the Color of Tea.

Humor me.


You might remember this olde tyme photo I posted of myself a few weeks ago. I got inspired to play with a copy of it. I love the warmth of sepia and monochrome is so easy to work with.

First I took a white pen and did some designing on my clothing and edited my waist. :)

Then I tore pieces of images out of the latest Pottery Barn catalog in shades of brown I liked. I let the photographs decide my composition. After the third piece of paper got glued down, I saw first a doorway, then a frame for my face. I went with it. Then I added some rubber stamping in brown ink and an old postage stamp and voila!

Suitable for for framing, I think!
