29 Faces...


Here is number 1! Didn't like the girls hair and so cut the top off her head and journalled about when your creative mind doesn't play ball! Once I had beheaded her I was just about to throw her away and then thought NO....PRETTY VACANT (thank goodness for the Sex Pistols!) So this is how my page came into being. I used some acrylic paints and foam stamps by Claudine Hellmuth (now being discontinued as she isn't working for Ranger any more...sniff!) to create the background. I quirky start I know but I didn't want to throw her away as I liked the face shading.




This is my second post of the day. Take a look at February's Junk Journal page below.

  4. I think it is an inspired start, something quite different for the 29 faces. Love the blues and turquoises too. I'm looking forward to your next 28 faces.

  12. How could you ever thought of throwing this away? It is brilliant! I love the fact there is no hair. It adds to the abstractness of the page. Love the colours you have used and the geometrical feel.

  13. i love the colors! I think I feel like this at times. So many thoughts, it would be nice to open the head up and make it vacant!
