Show Your Face

Hello lovely Facers. It is another week and another opportunity to share your portrait work, thank you so much for linking up last week. You guys are amazing!

So ready for this week’s share? Let’s get sharing!

First up the admin…


  • Head Positions – May 2016 (try different head potions through the month. Suggested by June Walker)
  •  Quick Draw Faces – July 2016 (set a timer to say 10-15 min – or less if you dare! – and draw a face or several faces in that time. Suggested by Gibby Frogett).
  • Change Hands – September 2016 (try using your non-dominant hand to draw/ paint / make your face this month. Suggested by Hazel Agnew).

Remember all are optional prompts, you don’t have to use them, they are there if you fancy playing, if not just link up your usual work as normal.

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.

My Share This Week…

Ok, so another partially hidden face! I seem to be in a partial face theme at the moment. I thought I would match up my face with some stamping this week. There is a reason, I’m in the middle of preparing for my PaperArtsy demos and Make and Takes at the Craft show in Alexandra Palace this weekend so it seemed natural to throw in some stamping on my face this week.

The face is sketched with a Sakura Pigma Micron pen then for the stamping I have used one of my own stamps from the PaperArtsy Eclectica³ {Kim Dellow} 01 set, a stamp from the PaperArtsy Eclectica³ {Emma Godfrey} 15 set, one from the PaperArtsy Eclectica³ {Everything Art} 01, one from PaperArtsy Hot Pick 1604 and a couple from PaperArtsy Hot Pick 1602.

See I packed them in but then I did have to get my stamping practice on for the weekend! The paint is all PaperArtsy Fresco Finish acrylics by the way and I’m working in one of my junk journals which I will be taking with me for the show if you happen to be going and want a closer look!
