create joy 34

Mona Pendleton | Monday, October 19, 2015 @ 7:30 PM | , ,


Hi there! I hope you had a great weekend! Today I have a mixed media page to share in my art journal featuring a "new" style face/girl. I'm having fun creating joy as I experiment with various styles, techniques and products.
I'm joining along with the current PaperArtsy 2015 Topic Faces challenge where we are challenged to create a face. I've long admired Kelly Rae Roberts primitive style girls which inspired me to create my page: 
 I love the whimsical / free style face which is obviously not realistic:
The background was created mostly with collaged paper from the Prima life time collection, along with various paints, stencils and stamped images from the PaperArtsy HP1004 stamp set:

I'm also entering my page in Kim Dellow's Show Your Face challenge.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Be Sweet ;)

You have captured Kelly's style so beautifully, your face is so, so pretty and I love the butterflies, such a lovely touch. As always, gorgeous work! Hugs, Anne xx

Stella said...

I think that mixed media suits you even better than the the elgant style I saw when I started following you ( when you were on the Spellbinders and Waltzingmouse team)
Seeing you working with different mediums and color palettes makes me sigh. I am impressed. What I love about this art page is the expression on her face, the butterfly wings and circle stamps. Definitely a piece of art!
