A Frenzy of Faces

I don't do anything by halves do I - 
why create just one face when you can do ten!
After I made my previous whimsical face 
following the video tutorial by Clare Lloyd,
I thought I'd do some more - practice makes perfect
after all, although I've got a way to go yet!


I discovered a better flesh tone (than my previously
very pink one) by mixing a little 'Nougat' coloured
Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic paint with 'Brushed Corduroy'
Distress Ink.
 
 

 
















I did each set in pairs and they looked like sisters.
Here's what I did with these two.

Made them some clothes, rubber stamping and a bit of lace.

Stuck them onto a board with a background of
paint, rubber stamping and a little embossing.
I edged around them with black watercolour pencil
but I was a bit too heavy handed!

 I softened the outline by rubbing lightly around it
with a babywipe.
Added some sisterly words.


 Finally covered the
whole board with
beeswax.





Sisters with dirty faces!

Thanks for looking :)

So beautiful, Sherry! They remind me of a fab young family member and her friends when they are all made up. They are 14 going on 25.)
That's quite a few steps you had to go through to create such prettyness. It's all about the layers, isn't it, and being able to draw a line which looks like it has been drawn on purpose.
