Trying a little something Different for Paint Party Friday

The fun of an Art Journal page is that you can experiment and just have fun.  Who really cares whether its good or not as you made it for yourself.  Painted in Acrylics on a canvas sheet, with die cuts and punched flowers.

In case you are wondering why her eyes are closed, its because she is listening to the sounds of nature, anyways that's what she told me !!

Will pop this into my Experimental Art Book for future reference.  Only about a week to go before 29 Faces start and am really excited because this is a humongous challenge for me and will really need to push myself, but hopefully at the end my faces will be a lot better.

Thank you for popping in and hope you have a great weekend, Hugs Annette xx

Mari Huertas said...

If you should experience it all in art, and the artist has to get inside what they have at all times, with the materials seems good to him and his work is original. saludos

She is gorgeous. I love her calm, listening, patience - soulfulness. Beautiful work! Happy PPF!

Marji said...

Love her! It would be nice to see her in person and really see all that lovely texture. Sadly 29 faces is too much of a commitment for me this time - so I will have to live vicariously through you. Can't wait to see your creations.
