More Faces!!!

Free Image Hosting at www.picturetrail.comI finally got some time this weekend to finish Sharon's exercises. After the first project, we were to take the same line drawing and change the eyes. Well, I wanted to do mine on a smaller surface than the first wooden purse...and I'd had this paper mache box basecoated for a while now. So, I decided to do another line drawing instead of shrinking the first one - and I put the final 2 faces on different sides of this box.

This first face, I had her looking in the opposite direction of the first - but I changed her hair. Its actually a haircut I've been dying to get!LOL Free Image Hosting at

The second face ... I was thinking of my Grandfather. He and my Grandmother raised my brother and I for the first 8 years of my life...and I loved him so. He was the most handsome man to me, with very dark skin and pale grey eyes. When I did this second face, I was thinking of him - and how much I miss him. I again changed up the hair ... just felt like experimenting with different hair textures.

I have an idea of what to do with the other two sides of this box ... and it will tie in so nicely, I think. Jan Fox has a rose collage/mixed media class going on, so I'm going to finish HER exercises on this box.

Wish me luck!!!


  1. You did a great job on those faces. Not sure if I could tackle that. The eyes are so expressive. It think they are fabulous Keni.

  2. You are so clever to do that on the box and I'm anxious to see what you do on the other two sides. Love your faces with so much expression and the story about your grandpa. You did exactly what I hoped by experimenting with other features like eyes and hair. Thank you for taking my class.

  3. You've done a great job on these Keni!
