Show Your Face – Focus On Eyes

Hey Facers, welcome to Show Your Face our weekly community face art share. Although this is not a challenge blog and you are free to post any type and style of face you have been making, we do run a prompt every other month for people to use, if they so wish. We are on the last week of our Focus On Eyes prompt and thanks again to Susana Magenheimer for suggesting it. Hope you have been having fun with it.

We have had some wonderful prompt suggestions recently and when I get a moment I will update our schedule with them, so keep your eyes peeled – see what I did there? Focus on eyes? Get it?

Erm anyway…

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.
  • There is a prompt every other month. Using the prompts is totally optional and just there if you fancy playing along. You can still post your face work even if you haven’t used the prompt.

Looking For The Blog Button?

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.

My Share This Week…

Ok so we have been focusing on eyes this month but how about something that is more of an abstract representation of a face and its features?

Over To You…

    great abstract face and i love the color you chose too!
    FYI- Julie is no longer using blog links for Art Journal Every Day- she's using a phone app "Periscope" and hashtags for sharing 🙁

      Thanks Linda, I had not realised Julie had moved her link up so thanks for the heads-up!
      Glad you like my abstract face 🙂 And thanks for linking up today she is fabulous and I love her hair! Kx

    I love the emotions you conveyed solely through the use of the blue greens and textures. Blessings!

    Love your abstract face, Kim. There is something really affecting about the image. It recalls how we can trace faces in patterns all around us too, which I always find fascinating. 🙂

  4. Wonderful abstract face Kim, I love watching how you are inspired each week along with those that enter. Adore the colour palette too. Tracy x
