'Girls like flowers', art journal page, mixed media.
'Plaits', gel pen over text
'Short hair', gel pen over text
'Ponder', wax crayon over text
I have decided to keep one of my journals for just faces, or maybe faces and figures.
The top photo is a page spread in my faces journal from yesterday. I like to write stuff on the blank page, cover it with gesso, and then do some visual art over the writings.
I find this helps when I have no idea what to do for the day....making the page relaxes me and gets me handling materials, and before long I am off on some art idea for the day.
The next 3 photos of faces on text are for the Show your face project.
This month the challenge is to do a face inspired by another artist in the group. I chose the work of Magpieheaven, Julie Ann Lee. She showed some faces on book text which I loved and so I decided to do some text art too.
My first 2 faces are in gel pen. Next, I tried wax crayon over text. I like both effects and now I have some faces to use in future art journalling pages.
See you later!
