Show Your Face

Hello gorgeous Facers! Here we are again, another Friday, another face!

Thank you to everyone who took the time to comment about the way forward for Show Your Face. All your votes have been counted and I will collate the ideas and get a schedule together. There is always time for more so feel free to continue to let me know what you would like to get from Show Your Face and how it can help you improve your artwork.

Ok, shall we get this party started?

Don’t forget:

  • Show Your Face is a community link up for portrait work in any style or medium.
  • the aims are to share, learn, practise, inspire, and be inspired.
  • to make sure that the face artwork is yours, if you use any stamps or templates to build the face they should be designed by you.
  • the link is open from 10 am (BST) every Friday and stays open for a week, so link away.
  • finished pieces, works in progress or retro posts (i.e. older works, not from this week) are all welcome.
  • to link back to the link blog post here for that week.
  • Spread the word on your blog/social media outlets and use the #ShowYourFace hashtag in social media.

If you want to wear the blog button with pride then hop on over to Show Your Face 31st July 2015 to grab it and there are instructions on how to put it on your blog there too.

  2. Arnoldo L. Romero, MLA

    It's fun to just play, because there's no stress, so you actually can learn a lot. I went for a negative image of the face this week, so I hope that's OK. Blessings!

    1. Kim Dellow

      So very true Arnoldo we do learn when we get to play! I'm looking forward to popping over to see your negative image! Kx

  3. Linda Kunsman

    I'm learning to play more and do want to try using just one brush and some paints to make a "quick" sketch.Maybe I'll have one done for next week:)

    1. Kim Dellow

      Hope your play is going well Linda, I think it is a good idea! Link it up if you manage to get one done 🙂 Kx

    That's the key – playing is practicing.

    Your practice page is what I need to do more of….need to get to Michaels and get more supplies.

    Like everything else….practice is the key…. I enjoyed your page…and your faces.

    1. Kim Dellow

      LOL! Oh dear I hope I haven't enabled you to buy more art supplies LOL! Thanks Wanda. Kx

  7. Janet

    I definitely need to do more of this. Right now I've lost my mojo for doing faces but I did mention Show Your Face on my blog today. I think it's important to go with the flow of creativity no matter what and right now I'm into my art journal. But I'll be back to faces soon. I always come back to them.

    1. Kim Dellow

      Thanks Janet. Ahh mojo, it comes and goes. Enjoy what you are doing, you know there is now pressure here so join again when you fancy it and we will look forward to seeing it 🙂 Kx
