Art It Friday – Show Your Face

Guess what day it is? Yep! It is Faceday and I was thinking we have been doing this since around April so it is about time that we had a blog badge, what do you think?

Well, here it is, please feel free to grab the code from the box under the badge to put it on your blog to tell the world you are sharing your face with a group of like minded folk:

grab button for Kim Dellow

<div class=”kim-dellow-button” >
<a href=”” rel=”nofollow” target=”_blank”>
<img src=”” alt=”Kim Dellow” />

It links straight back to the Show Your Face posts so that you can find them easily.

Right, who is up for a Face share?

For anyone new here this is a regular place to come and inspire, be inspired, but above all to share our portrait progress week by week. Every Friday at 10 am (BST) a new Show Your Face blog post goes live with the linky to add your blog post or online gallery picture to with any portrait work you have been doing.

Your face can be drawn, doodled, painted, stitched, be made using any materials and can be any style, all I ask is that it is your artwork. If you use templates, stencils or stamps to build the face anatomy, then they should be ones you have made yourself and not someone else’s. 

Finished pieces, works in progress or retro posts (i.e. older works, not from this week) are all welcome, so come join in and spread the word on your blog/social media outlets. Use hashtag #ShowYourFace if you like!  

I’m sharing another sketch this week, I seem to be stuck in face-sketch-mode at the moment but I’m really enjoying them.

Kim Dellow Show Your Face sketch 23rd July 2015

She is sketched in a white pen, a Signo Uni-ball, on a painted black page from my junk journal.

So that is my share for the week, now…

Over To You…

Link your faces artwork and spread the word on your blog and/or social media, hashtag #ShowYourFace for those of you that use them. Please do let anyone you think would be interested in sharing their portraits know about our community here.

Don’t forget – During August Art It Friday – Show Your Face will become Show Your Face Inspired By {Insert Name} learn more about it from my 10th July 2015 blog post.

Catch you later Face-Artinators


PS. Some other places you might want to link your work to: Art journal pages link up with Julie Fei-Fan Balzer’s Art Journal Everyday post. Painted pages share at Paint Party Friday.

    I like the white on black sketch. I posted the badge on my blog. It's a little big but I think the whole thing shows up.

    1. Kim Dellow

      Thanks Janet and thanks for posting the badge too x Hope the size is not too annoying for you. Hope you are having a good Sunday. Kx

  3. A very striking sketch, the dark background makes the sketch pop. It's so beautiful, Kim! It'll be fun to test the inspiration work next month. Happy Friday!

    Love and hugs

    Great blog badge and your face on black is awesome. I love those white pens but they are so hard to get a hold of!! Good job! Again thanks for hosting!

    Hugs Giggles

      Thanks! So glad you like it! The white pens are so hard to get hold of, you are right and then they don't seem to last very long either which is a pain! But I do love how they look. Hope you are having a good Sunday. Kx

    Loving the white on black! It looks like some kind of printing like lino cutting or woodcuts, which I would love to have a go at, actually! I also love the badge. which hopefully I've added successfully. Thank you so much for this opportunity for us all to share our work. I do look forward to it each week.

    1. Kim Dellow

      Hey Julie Ann, glad you like the sketch and the badge 🙂 Thank you as always for sharing, I look forward to #ShowYourFace every week too! I'm looking forward to trying the inspired by next month 🙂 Hope you are having a lovely Sunday. Kx

    I really like your negative, white on black..very striking and the features really show up. I too have posted the badge on my sidebar.

    1. Kim Dellow

      Hi Wanda, I've been wanting to try the white on black for a while, I do love the way it looks in the negative. Thanks for taking the badge 🙂 Hope you are having a good Sunday. Kx

    Great face kim, I wonder how those graphic pens you use in your blitsy planner page tutorial would go on a black background ? I must say I feel like a bit of a cop out just using flickr, for my pics on show your face, because I know I always prefer to see a blog when I hit the link, to find out more about the artist and their artwork. I even admit that when I use to look at all the links on julie balzer blog for art journal everyday, I would skip over the ones that only had flickr, am I the only one that feels that way. I've kind of been thinking of starting a blog, but then there are so many already. What do you think?

    1. Kim Dellow

      Hi Tiffany, I shall have a go with the Graphik Line Markers on the black and let you know 🙂
      So it sound to me like you might *NEED* to give blogging a go LOL! Flickr is great but blogging is better, although I might be biased! You can still keep your Flickr gallery going as well, in fact you have reminded me that I really should update my flickr too!

      Blogging isn't for everyone and the more you can put into it the more you get out of it but there is no harm in trying it out and seeing if you like it. Blogging literally changed my life and that is no overstatement!

      There is always room for more blogs, go on, try it, see if you like it 🙂 🙂 🙂

    1. Kim Dellow

      Thanks Susi 🙂 glad you like the badge too 🙂 Hope you are having a lovely Sunday. Kx

    1. Kim Dellow

      Thanks Lynn and thanks for popping in. Hope you are having a good Sunday. Kx

  8. Your sketch would also work beautifully as a handmade carved stamp. My piece this week doesn't show much of the face, but it's there. Blessings!
