Today we are in Japan - how lovely!
I hope you are enjoying this warm weather - its been a bit too hot for moi (coupled with the odd hot flush as well ....phew!). As part of my blog update I am trying to be on Google+ - rather than facebook, I have
tried to do facebook and it was too hard - mainly because I am a moron. Also being Billy no mates played a large part in it as well!! (laughing........thats not true btw!!) (I hope - although I can see a certain person out there who I KNOW is going to reply!!!)
Well - the old MOJO is back and the urge to do a FACE really came over me, its been a while hasn't it? Mainly due to my eyes - and I go back very soon to find out if I face another operation, so thought it best to do it whilst the urge was there and whilst I am able.
If you want to learn to draw a face and are not a natural artist - then you wont go far wrong in purchasing the Suzie Blu book which is available at Artist Trading Post, its a really good book.
So this is for the Artful Times Challenge which is use a stencil from the Crafters Workshop range so I used an old favourite which is COSMIC SWIRL its a brilliant stencil and I use it all the time.
For my faces I always do them onto paper and cut them out - it give a cleaner line and you dont have to worry about the background so much. Its done using a mixture of pencils, coloured pencils and a sketching pen.
I used Violet, Turquoise, Orange, Iceblue and Graphite to achieve the softness that I wanted. Then to further enhance her I used VIVA DECOR PAPER PENS - in Opal and Gold, to create perfect pearl drops. These didn't dribble, run or squirt out like some - just flowed out of the pen perfectly. I LOVE THEM!!
Thank you for popping in and if you have left a comment - that is really lovely! - perhaps you will join me on my PINTEREST page (I hope so!)
