My friend Margot turned 14 yesterday. When I was in Bali this March facilitating Anahata's Bali retreat we did a project entitled Wallpaper People. We were instructed to bring enlarged photocopies of faces, either found ones or our own photos , so after many compulsive hours spent searching for the perfect face in magazines, I settled for going through my photos and finding some great faces. For me, I liked using a face that belonged to someone I knew. Anahata also had us bring paints, ephemera and decorative papers. For this class, we took our faces and through a variety of her techniques with paint and collage, we built our wallpaper people around our face photo. I chose Margot, well just because i wanted to.
I loved this project and went on to make more, I can not get enough of making these,
it suits me.
