I have always been intrigued with faces. . . real or created. I started doodling them as far back as I can remember. And not just faces but flowers, leaves, swirls, squiggles and letters as well. I never really thought my doodles were anything other than mindless scribbling as a means to keep myself occupied during classes, then meetings and lectures as I got older.

I never dreamed that someday I could actually call my scrap paper scribbles, art. . until I spent a day with Traci Baustia. She convinced me to just let go, that it was ok. . . So here I am on yet another journey. . artFace, a blog and a line of goodies created to celebrate all things face.

29 Faces - day 16 & 17

 I started out going in one direction today,
but ended up in a completely different one...

Both were done on canvas,
one with gesso applied first, the other not.

Layers of paint were applied, then stencils, papers and fabric.
 The freemotion face was stitched last.

I had numerous thread breaks...
and probably won't stitch on painted canvas any time soon.
At some point I will add embellishments.
