Show Your Face

Hey Facers, Time for this week’s community face share, I hope you all have been having lots of face making fun!

Right let’s share some faces.

First up the admin…


  • 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 #ShowYourFaceFriday hashtag in social media.

My Share This Week…

A winter-themed face made with paint and Micron pen

My share this week is a mish-mash! This week I’ve worked on a dumping page in my junk journal that is what I call the pages that I clean off stencils or other tools on. So before I had even started there was a bit of texture and the snowflakes on there from previous projects.

When I was flicking through my journal trying to get inspiration for this week’s face this page popped out and so did this face. She is drawn with a Sakura Pigma marker and painted with a mix of PaperArtsy paints and Distress Paints as well as some of the Derwent Graphik line markers too.

I think the snowflake hair looks a little like one of those floral swimming hats from the 50/60’s. Is that just me?

    Love your face Kim and I wouldn't have thought about a swimming hat but yes it does a bit, I was made to wear one so I remember the agony :-D! I was aiming for last weeks link up but missed by a day so have posted in this one anyway. Have a good weekend, Chris x

    1. Kim Dellow

      LOL! I just saw it and thought 'swim hat' 🙂 I remember wearing swim hats and it just seemed an impossible task trying to get them on your head! Thanks for linking Chris, I'm glad you could join in! Kx

  3. Linda Kunsman

    Ha-you're right -that could be a bathing cap! Great journal page Kim. Too bad I'm not eligible for the Cricut; I would LOVE one of those types of machines!

    1. Kim Dellow

      Oh sorry Linda, shame you can't enter 🙁 🙁 Glad you like the bathing cap page – that's what I'm calling it now LOL! Kx

  4. Julie Ann Lee

    How well I remember those bathing hats – the green ones looked like cabbages! I love the snowflakes and the great collaged look of this portrait. It's a great idea to compile a journal using mop-up pages too! I'm so looking forward to January and trying out different eye techniques too! So much to learn. xx

    1. Kim Dellow

      LOL! Cabbages! So true! Thanks Julie Ann and I can not wait to see the eyes. I know, there is just so much out there isn't there? Kx
