Face Journaling

I have been working on faces over the last month, trying to improve my skills in making mixed media faces from my own freehand drawings. Just thought I would share a few...



Each face is a journal page. There will be sixteen in all that will be as different as I can make them. Half the pages are white and half are black for an extra challenge. Keep checking back. I will post them as they are completed and finish with the cover of the completed book. And speaking of journals, I also completed this journal made in the style of Teesha Moore, but instead of using canvas board, I used the covers of an old book. The chicken and egg were on the original cover, which had the texture of canvas. I incorporated them into my final design. The back is a portrait of Alex and Amazing Grace.

Jan, your faces are wonderful, full of energy and whimsy. After making the accordian face book, I want to work with larger scale faces. Your journal pages inspire lots of ways to paint faces. Thanks for sharing.
