How are you all doing? What a day I've had today!!! Absolutely crazy, but good crazy! Very good! :)
You know how much I love journaling, but you may have noticed that I haven't shown you much of that of late. I like to draw faces and I love sketching just for myself... there are things that I share and that I don't as much... there is a lovely challenge over the **ART*JOURNAL*JOURNEY* (I hope I got the stars right :)) called 'Inspired by Masters'. I have been dying to join Susi's challenge for some time and when I found out about Valerie's choice of a theme I thought I'd have a go.... this time i decided to share! Not only because I got inspired by
Andrea Gommol (this face is mostly inspired by her, but is a completely a product of my imagination and my drawing skills, of course... ;)), Ady Alamanza, Dina Wakley, and other wonderful face painting artists, but mainly by my dear friend Donna who is a true artist to me! She encouraged me to share my 'faces' with you all and she has been a darling during my crafty journey. She always has a word of encouragement or an inspiring work on hand and therefore I'd like to dedicate this journal page to her! Thank you, Donna!
...a little bit different angle trying t catch the stickles...didn't really work, did it?! :)
aaaah, caught a few here... :)
You might like to know a little bit about this girl... she's a bit grumpy! She can't believe the Christmas is nearly here and hasn't bought any presents for her other half yet :/ ... hence the expression and the bare tree... I will do my journaling later... next time, she will be happy and excited, because she received some great news!
I hope you like her... I tried taking photos when it was really rainy and dark here in London.. I think I need to move to the Bahamas or somewhere like that ;) .. anyway, I worked on her for about a half a day, I won't tell how it was done as you get the idea :) Right? Ok, if you have any questions then feel free to ask... the camera totally refused to take a picture of the diamond stickles dots on her fury trims... well, just take my word for it.. it looks pretty :)
I'd like to enter my whimsey christmas girl into a few more lovely challenges...
