What advice would you give someone starting this project? Even though I did not finish the black fill due to heavy puckering, that this is a new and fun technique that you can use for years and turn your pictures into a thing of beauty.

You did a great job! I think the wavy lines look really cool.

Thank you so much. I didn't want to cover any part of her face and the wavy lines helped eliminate that.

This is a beautiful...awesome...piece of work. I encourage you to finish it and you probably can stitch the puckers out. It is it just to beautiful to give up on now. Please continue.

I think it's lovely, and the black circle around the portrait makes it stand out beautifully. Do finish your background - it's too good to leave unfinished!

Your words of encouragement will help me in getting it finished in the near future. Thank you so much for your comment.
