my addiction goes on, you're going to know my whole family....my daughter Aurelia was doing belly dancing on that photo and I liked her radiant and happy expression. I used Maria Elkins ' method but I'm adding my personnal touch...I free motion stitched everything...the ear-rings are made of golden lace.

Nice work! And the lace is perfect for the earrings. You did a great job on the eyes.

Maria's DVD is wonderful.

I have watched it several times, but haven't begun a portrait.....yet.

You are doing wonderfully well.  Keep up the great work!
