MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Paint Party Friday and 29 Faces

I laughed so hard when I finished this journal page (and face#14). I normally paint in my journal on my knee and don't always realise I've gone wrong until I stand back.... that'll teach me.  I really need to practice profiles... ooops Mick Jagger comes to mind.... not a good look for a girl lol


The background was done with Dylusions inksprays and then I used watercolour pencils over the top.  I'm soooo glad they aren't MY chin and lips.   Oh well at least I can laugh about it!!


I'm happier with my sketch although she's a bit futuristic... my imagination works in mysterious ways! 


Along with 29 faces I'm linking up with Paint Party Friday today.
Thanks for looking
hugs

You are very funny. But yes, I do see the Mick Jagger resemblance:-) The second is beautiful - reminds me of a flight attendant.
