Self-Portrait Doll

I have had a lot of fun with this altered photo of myself, from atc's to journals to dolls. This self-portrait doll was a ton of fun to make. First I collaged my image of myself and scanned it. I enlarged it and printed it on two successive sheets of inkjet compatible fabric and put them together with just a little seam. I ironed this onto some muslin I had painted with metallic purple paint. I cut around the image to create the doll, then cut a piece the same size for the back. The back is stamped with gold paint for interest. It's sewn on the top and stuffed. Then I just had fun embellishing myself as the "bird lady."
