My Creative endevours have moved

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.

29 Faces May challenge

Well it's been a while but finally I'm back and I have a working laptop courtesy of a lovely friend of a friend who let me have his old one cheaply.  My other one may still be able to be fixed but it could be a while and I just couldn't wait any longer or give up on a bargain.  See good things DO happen to those who  Not having my lappy meant that I spent more time doing honest to goodness crafty and arty bits... have been in my element really!! 

I came across Aylas' challenge to do 29faces in May  and you know I just love doing faces so I had to join in.  Trouble is I'm starting half way through because of my laptop problems so I will have to share 2 every day to catch up.

So without further ado... my first face was done in my journal...

the background is Dylusions spray ink and acrylic paint and the face and hair etc is done with watercolour pencils.

Face no 2 is a quick pencil sketch not a lot of detail but it's been fun to push myself. 

I hope you will join me while I share the rest of my faces over the other days in the month... see you with another two tomorrow.
Chris xx
