Mixed Media Mayhem - DLP August Challenge - Faces and Characters

I am sure I am not alone in the world of art journaling in my reluctance to share my work with drawing faces.  The focus of this month's challenge in the Documented Life Project is faces, creating characters.  Starting with drawing eyes in "I Can See Clearly" through the month, I was liberal with my interpretation of the art tasks and journal prompts to keep it fun and experimental.

Art Challenge: Expressive Faces
Journal Prompt:  What I see clearly now

Art Challenge: Characters
Journal Prompt:  "If you're going to be weird, be confident about it!" 

Art Challenge: Painted
Journal Prompt:  How do I face my biggest challenge?


  1. These pages are fun, Linda. I don't see why you are hesitant about sharing your faces - they're great :) But I know what you mean.

  2. Lovely pages, Linda! The faces in the first are wonderful! I love what you did on the left spread - painting the two faces over each other! It created a great effect!
