Hello and welcome to 29 faces in September. This is what I've been working on this month now that the kids are ALL IN SCHOOL. I heard about it thru my talented blog friend Stephanie, she has been impressing me with her drawing skills (esp. her faces) for months now. When she first shared this I had already told myself to dedicate Sept. to the kids and homeschooling, not start anything new for me. That first week of Sept and seeing Stephanie's pages changed my mind and I decided to GO FOR IT!! Not only am I doing this but so is my daughter Renee, she loves drawing faces and thought it would be fun for her also. I didn't want to commit to daily blogging these faces either, figured we'd see how it went first then if all was good would start sharing a group of them at a time. I'm so glad to be doing this, it's been so fun and challenging and good for me, just what I needed with the kids ALL BACK IN SCHOOL. These aren't anything close to what Stephanie has been doing and I haven't checked out the blog who is hosting this challenge, that would freeze me right there, just seeing Stephanies' is enough to motivate me and make this fun. There were no rules in this, even unfinished faces are fine and any medium is accepted. These rules made it even better for me, LESS STRESS!
So I decided to make up a mini canvas for each day and fill up the page protector which will be added to my PL at the end of the month. I LOVE LOVE that this will be in my PL now that I've been filling the canvas up. My daughter is doing hers on computer paper and I haven't decided yet how to add hers into PL or doing something else. Will share her pictures later on, still need to get a picture of them. We have both slipped here in there but catch up right away. I can honestly say thsi is making me very HAPPY and inspired to keep doing more faces and learning more about drawing them.
I'm going to repost the same picture now below so I can explain them to you, hope your hanging in thee with me thru this, just had to explain it all. Oh and I have to share links at the bottom...
Ok, like I said these are just fun not very artistic and WOW but they are MINE and I love them!!
The faces start at the top left and go across..oh and the rule I gave myself is however way it comes out that's ok and no redoing them or starting over again, heck I'd still be on day one, lol...
Day 1... look how tiny she is, haha just had fun and Renee LOVES THIS ONE
Day 2... a little bigger and color on her face, very plain and calm
Day 3... she is happy and excited about Labor Day so she is decked out and BIG
Day 4... decided to just use pencil, uuuhhhh not much else
Day 5... LOVE her, she is me with my curly hair. The kids like this one
Day 6... UH HELLO THERE! Red sparkly gel pen hair, SAM LOVES HER
Day 7... A BOY FACE, haha not to bad for the first time
Day 8... a pencil face again, BIG and happy, like this one
Day 9... hello pretty face, I didn't know what kinda hair so I left her bald and LOVE IT
So that is my first 9 photos, the next 9 are on the backside and will be shared later on. I pretty much used pencil, pen, sharpie, colored pencils for these. In the newer ones I'm using some paints and other goodies. I sometimes freehand the face shapes and others using a oval cutter.
So this has me thinking of a plan for October and I will share that later with you. So here are the links to Stephanie's blog and the host of this challenge, I hope you can at least check out Stephanie's she is doing an AMAZING JOB WITH HER FACES. I have even named some of her past faces.
Thanks for reading this and for the sweet and supporting comments in my last post. HUGS!
