Catching Up on 29 Faces...and More Postcards

I'm caught up but they're all small faces and not very good. I sat and drew out these faces while watching TV last night.

Here they are...







They're all just quickie sketches.

Also I made more postcards using
Jane Davies technique...

This is the painted paper before I cut it.







And there were four ATCs too... 


I also did a few ATCs for Valentine's Day
but didn't get them sent out!

Sorry about the dark picture.
When I tried to lighten it
everything faded out so I just left it dark.
If you want any of these ATCs just let me know.
I like making them but they begin to pile up.

  1. Wow, you've been busy! Seriously Janet, I really like your faces! I always admire the way you can art in front of the telly. I struggle so much with that (I do cross-stitch instead). Love your postcards and ATcs too.

    1. Carin, I used to do cross stitch, too, but I like to draw in front of the TV but I can't paint or journal like some people do...just draw.

  3. At least you remembered what day it is....I did my first post since Jan. 2 and did not even think to mention it is Valentines day. You are really keeping busy in the art room.I would think it would be hard to do that many faces and manage to make them different, good job.

  4. I have to join the others and say WOW. All these hairstyles, where do they come from? Each time I try, it stops with the hair. I hope your day is just as you want it to be, mine has been good.

  7. Hi Janet...thanks for coming by my blog...I haven't been very good about visiting blogs lately. I love your cards and atc's...I have tried that method of starting large and cutting your cards afterward. I love the colors you used. Your faces look amazing! Maybe she'll do another month of faces later on and I'll get in on that one. Have a good weekend!

  8. Wow Janet...I really love your hearts! Such a Hallmark quality to them, but with 100 x more charm! I am enjoying your faces...they all have a common theme or look to them.

  10. The colors on those postcards sends me to the moon! You have such an astounding sense of color and playfulness and boldness that I lack. I need to free up! These are fabulous!
