Show Your Face

Good Friday to you Facers! Hope you are ready for this week’s share?

Show Your Face!

First up the admin…


In The Style Of  – November 2015 (examine our favourite established artists, incorporate what they do through our own face practise)

Focus On Eyes – January 2016 (break out of our normal practice and try different styles of doing eyes such as traditional, cartoon, manga etc. As suggested by Susana Magenheimer)

Inspired By – March 2016 (pick fellow Facers to inspire our work this month)

Feel free to let me know if you have any more themes or ideas for Show Your Face.

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.

    I love those little faces in your junk journal, Kim. They are so full of character! This is a great idea for 'warm ups'. I must make myself another little journal to carry around in my bag. x
