Hi Everyone!
Here is the original Photo of Megan along with the framed version of her. Megan’s grandfather is a woodworker and he built the frame for it. I wrote a tutorial blog of how I wood burned her portrait.
Hugs…Danette

Is it real or is it memorex? That looks great, you even got the texture in the background.

Wow! I have never seen woodburning done of a portrait such as this and I’m impressed! You definitely have a lot of talent and an eye for detail. You had a wonderful subject to work with, too – a real cutie!
