29 Faces - Day 2

I guess I'm unofficially playing along with 29 Faces this month. I had that sketch yesterday which was done on Friday and now I have one I did yesterday...




I hope you can see it. I tried two different times to get a good photo but not sure. I had some excess ink from a stencil on this page and just started drawing over it. I might do more to her...add some color...or maybe not. Who knows!

The only other thing I did yesterday was another journal page...


I don't think it's finished...I got this far and stopped. I seem to do that a lot with journal pages. I love doing backgrounds but then I don't have much interest in going on from there.
*************************************************
I also want to tell you about a FREE class I just signed up for...you can learn more about it here. Just
scroll down to the bottom of the post.

  1. If I finished all the projects I have started it would be wonderful, a mental freedom. I am ready to see how your new girl turns out.
    Winter is starting to get me down, I may have cabin fever. There are just to many cloudy days.
    I am working on a story (fiction)that I will start to share as I progress. I am in the mood to write and I found a picture of a child that got me wanting to know her. But like most old pictures, no story. So I am making one up. It is something I like to do. Big Hugs girfriend!

  2. You are really on the go at the moment. This latest girl looks great as usual, and she's going to be beautiful whatever you decide. In fact she's quite intersting as she is now. Loosing interest when the background is done, I even don't come as far as that. But, I have something new I'll try soon. I'm just chewing the idea a bit more. Today I started cleaning my photo file, three years of doing nothing isn't good I can tell you. Enjoy your challenge of 29 faces, which means alot of good posts to read for the rest of us I hope.

    1. Thanks, Laila. When it comes to art I'm either feast or famine and right now I seem to be in the feast mode.

  3. I love your face Janet. She is quite wonderful and the subtle stencil in the background is waiting to be adorned. Journal backgrounds, well maybe you are doing the journal you want to do who says it needs to be more? xox

    1. That's true, Corrine...it is my journal to make what I want, isn't it!

  4. I can see why you don't want to go over the journal page....because it's so perfect and beautiful just as it is. I'd just put a nice quote on it and leave it. I love it...and could stare at that one all day long.... Good job!! Thanks for the heads up on Carolyns class!!

    Hugs Giggles

  5. I like both of these pieces. The journal page looks very intriguing. I really looked close to see all that you did. Thanks for posting about the FREE workshop. I signed up, too.

  8. I do that with journal pages too. I make a background and then it just sits there for weeks or months on end, until I have an idea and flip through my backgrounds to find one that fits. Love the face too

    1. Me, too, Carin...I have some backgrounds from a couple of years ago that still don't have anything done to them!

  9. So happy to see you in the challenge! Very nice lady, thanks for sharing ☺
    And those backgrounds are screaming for a portrait!!
    ... or maybe you are an abstract painter?

    1. A little of both...I like doing faces but I also like doing abstract art.

  10. Sometimes a background is a piece of art on it's own. It looks beautyfull.
    Your face is super. I love how the background and little bit of color works.

  11. I like very much how the face emerges from the colors on the paper. Most especially like the yellow streaks. I want to discover more about who she is and why she has yellow on her face. There has to be a story.
