Unique Face - Mixed Media Monday

Hello Friends!! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! I got a bit of craft on in my Art Journal;

Here is my mixed media page using the Jane Davenport face stencils;


My background was done by first sticking down the negative leftovers from a page of cardstock letter stickers, and going over them with gesso, and then some Dylusions sprays. 

The letter sticker diecut/negative gave a fun texture, I also then went over it with a writing lines stamp. Here is a closeup view so you can hopefully see the texture and stamping in the background;


 The face was sketched with the Jane Davenport face stencil, and then painted. I went in with Faber-Castell Big Brush markers for highlights, shadows and details, etc.

I chose this great quote for my page, printed out from my computer, and went around each section again with Big Brush markers.


I figured the face and girl I made was pretty unique, so went with the quote well.


The last step was to put some splatters around, with India Ink.  

and that is my page in my Art Journal, for this Mixed Media Monday!

I hope you like it, Thanks so much for dropping by!

Hugs xoxo

Wow, this is so gorgeous! I love the textured background, what a great idea to use the negative from the cardstock stickers! I love the sentiment, too, it's so true of many lovely people I know!
