Forensic self portrait

I was finally able to play a bit and join in this months Green Pepper Press Street team crusade No. 49 called Forensic Self Portrait. I actually had surgery 2 weeks ago on my cervical spine so I snapped a few pictures of my lovely cervical brace. After I loaded them I made the one shown on this page and gave it a cartoonish look in photo bucket.  I think it looks great with the subject. I used a mini bag to hold one of my tags. I glued the phronology head on top of it. I also searched my drawers of saved stuff and found a heart pouch that I used for my other tags. The tags were colored with distressed inks awhyle ago and were in my tags drawer. The background paper was done a long time ago with walnut inks. I knew it would make a great backround for this piece. I think this was a great project. It will be realy fun to look back on in the future and see how things change. If you click on the title I have a link to the GPP site if you would like to join in. Thanks for stopping by. xoxoxo

Viki - oh my! I hope all is going well with the recovery from your surgery. I love that you have a sense if humor about it and created a forensic report about being a patient - and that you included the wristband! I'm sure this is an event you will never forget, but hopefully you won't see yourself in a neckbrace again so including that photo is a classic. Thanks for sharing with the team Viki, and good vibes to you for healing.

Wow! Hope you're doing better now. I'm amazed you managed to make art so soon after surgery, although it was probably quite therapeutic...
