Expressive Faces in Art Journaling

Hello!

For this art journaling challenge, I decided to take a different approach.  Rather than drawing or painting an expressive face, I thought it would be fun to "build" a face using pieces from other faces I had already created...kind of like a puzzle.

I began by scanning faces from my collection, printing the elements I liked best...eyes, nose, mouth.  I used these to create my expressive face.  If you would like to use my "parts" you can download the printable sheet HERE for free!

Have a blessed day!

Art Journal Challenge - Using Stencils

Hello!

I was happy to be asked by Susan of Irreversiblymoi to participate in an art journaling challenge and I chose Challenge 24 - Sublime Stencils!  Along with a selection of store bought stencils I also cut a few of my own shapes.  Stencils are a versatile way to add quick backgrounds or elements to any page.  How do you use stencils? What are some of your favorites?

Have a blessed day!
