Karla

I started this portrait of my Granddaughter,Karla, back in February , and was never happy with it, so I re-drew the face and started over.
I think it is more of a likeness than before. Tearing up paper to make a face is not real easy! But, it is fun to try.  I wanted to show her beautiful blue eyes.

Good job Suzy! Not easy doing portraits this way! Lol! I think you may have to start a support group for those addicted to torn paper collage!!! I hope your grand daughter appreciates the hard work, remind her it's not a photograph.
