Instead of doing a post every day, I think I will keep grouping them together. This way it feels less like pressure and more like fun making them. As it was intended. So here are my faces #8, 9 and 10 for the 29 Faces in 30 days challenge.
To be honest I have been struggling a bit with this. I felt I was doing the same thing each time and I didn’t want that. So I started trying out some different things.
Here are some close ups of the three different faces I made and some explanation with each one.
Face #1 was made in my (mostly text) journal with just a regular bic ballpoint. I guess I was inspired by the black lines around the boxes of the photo collages I make with picasa.
It’s tiny, but that was part of the fun. I’m sort of reverting to the way I used to draw and doodle in my agenda’s when I was in school. Many, many years ago.
I liked the black and white outlines so much I took them into my altered book art Journal and made this.
I made the blocks with acrylic paint and was going to make a face in each block. Made the eyes with colored pencils and markers. stamped the date and then went completely blanc…
I didn’t want to put anything else next to the eyes. I remembered the quote from Art Journal Journey, “Less is more” and figured it was true.
So I wrote the quote in the blocks with ballpoint pen and had fun doing so =).
Then when I was working in my day book (smash whatever) I found a picture of a lady I wanted to draw.
So I did.
And I realy like her.
She was done all with stabilo markers. Something I thought I couldn’t do.
And she looks realy happy. Also something I thought I couldn’t do. She made me happy and with drawing her I’m back on track with the 29 faces challenge so that makes me happy as well =).
With that I leave you, off to get my allergies retested and I will be back later to see what my fellow artists have been making.
I wish you all a very happy day =).
