Get your face in the newspapers :-0

5 in the newsMy newest famous friends!  Well their faces ARE in the news!!   This is a series of five faces in my 100 faces project I did with torn bits of newsprint.  I tore bits of paper out of the newspaper not paying attention to the shape so much, just the size.  After I glued them  to pieces of card stock I began to look for the individual face shape and look for the character that was living inside.  I filled in the individual features with marker and then used watercolor to bring them to life!  These turned out better than I had imagined.  The newsprint adds some texture and interest to these mini portraits.  Starting with an odd shape rather than my own preconceived notion of a face shape forced me to take a look from a different viewpoint.  The result is something I would not have created if I were just drawing.  These were intriguing to do and I may make another series of these.  This brings my grand total of faces to 30/100!  I’m having fun and I’m open to suggestions of other creative methods to include in my next faces–make a comment with a suggestion on how I could create a face using a different approach–I’d love to try something different!


About artsynaturenut

I'm a creative warrior constantly fighting my battle with my muse against that nasty critic. I love to paint and do mixed media work either on the canvas or with art journals. I'll dabble in just about everything--bookmaking, photography, writing, etc. and get excited about combining them. Hence the mixed media!
